Worldwise Calendar 2015 featured in Japanese Newspaper!


The Worldwise Learning Centre was featured in the 41st issue (31st Jan) of the Kitakuni Newspaper of Japan.
UCLan student, Marina Nesterova took a photo of ‘Senmaida’ whilst visiting Yushima City, during her year abroad. She submitted the photograph to the Worldwise annual photo competition and was successful in featuring in the 2015 edition of the calendar. Who would have thought that this exciting news would have traveled all the way to Japan!

Translation of article:
“In the British University of Central Lancashire’s Worldwise Calendar of 2015, Yushima City Country’s scenic beauty of “white rice planting” has been explored. According to the 3rd year study abroad student,  Mayu Saitou (21), the Centre provides foreign language education to students. Every year, for the introduction of cultures around the world, students and academic staff take photos of many parts of the world to create the calendar. More than 100 have been made and distributed to international partners of the University. The picture is of Miss Marina Nesterova (21)- born in Latvia- who when studying at Nagoya’s foreign language University in May,  visited the rice planting event and took the photo that was featured in September’s page.
