授業の概要 Course Overview


In line with NUCB's mission statement, this English language course aims to educate and inspire students to become innovative and ethical leaders through the medium of English. In so doing, it is hoped they can grasp and take on the ideal of ʻFrontier Spiritʼ and the ability to create knowledge in English for the advancement of business and society.
This seminar marks the final stage in the important relationship between the teacher and the students in terms of overall guidance and personal self-development toward graduation and transition into the workplace.

• It is designed to provide students with the guidance, advice and time with respect to editing and amending parts of their thesis before approval and final submission. It is an interactive course where students are expected to participate and to contribute to the class and to seek guidance and advice from the instructor when necessary.

• Students are, as usual, required to work well in teams and to share knowledge and ideas with each other to assist the editing and amending process.
Students are to successfully amend parts of their thesis requiring improvement based on supervisor feedback and via self-evaluation using the Q-5 technique introduced in this seminar. By achieving these tasks, they will be able to submit their thesis as part of their graduation requirement.
