Professor Michael Whitby, Pro-Vice Chancellor and Head of the College of Arts and Law and Jon Inegbedion from the International Relations Office visited Tokyo in November 2010 to meet with institutional partners and attend a UK–Japan Higher Education symposium hosted by the British Council. They used this opportunity to have an informal reunion with 23 University of Birmingham alumni.
Alumni met at an ‘izakaya’ in the Shinjuku district and enjoyed light food and drinks. The event offered a great way for graduates to catch up with friends from Birmingham and meet other fellow alumni. There was also the chance to learn about recent developments at the University and hear about ways in which alumni can support Birmingham in attracting excellent students from Japan.
