Nurhamizah binti Ibrahim, a post-graduate student from Universiti Islam Sultan Sharif Ali (UNISSA) through the Halalan Thayyiban Research Centre (PPHT), left for Japan to participate in the Japan Student Services Organisation (JASSO) programme at the Osaka University from today until December 18.

PPHT Director Associate Professor Dr Nurdeng Deuraseh and Head of PPHT (Post-Graduate) Programme, Dr Zeiad Amjad Abdulrazzak Aghwan bid her farewell at the Brunei International Airport yesterday.

JASSO is an interactive SDG co-creation student exchange programme hosted by Osaka University where participants will be involved in research visits to local non-profit organisations, companies and Halal bodies around Tokyo and Osaka, such as Japan Halal Association and Nippon Express. The programme is hoped to help improve the quality of students’ research, and enable them to experience first-hand Japanese culture and communities.

Prior to her departure, a Doa Selamat ceremony was held on September 28 at PPHT, attended by PPHT director, head of programme, officers, staff and undergraduates at PPHT.
