The delegation is visiting the university to check on the progress of the three Japanese students from Tottori University, who are on an exchange programme and to explore ways for further collaboration with Makerere University. The students are hosted in CEDAT, CHUSS, and COBAMS.  The student at CEDAT is in the Department of Architecture and Physical planning.

The delegation informed the meeting of the opportunities for collaboration with Tottori University, which include staff and student exchanges as well as opportunities for scholarships from the Japanese Government.  The students however have to pay for the air ticket.

Another area envisaged for collaboration is a five-year project in which 1,000 Africans, including Ugandans will study at Tottori University.
