Poole has 1,300 students in 2001: 400 female students in the secretarial program and 890 students in the undergraduate program, half of whom are male. Among these students, eighty are from foreign countries such as Korea, China, Taiwan, Thailand, Nepal, Turkey, Canada and Britain.  We consider the presence of overseas students on the campus to be essential to our programs in intercultural studies. Since many of our Japanese students spend time studying or volunteering overseas, they are eager to know and assist our foreign students.
