With many highly ranked universities, a world-leading technological sector, and a vibrant, unique culture, Japan is becoming an increasingly popular destination for international students.
This is even more the case this year, and with COVID-19 causing students to consider alternative destinations the demand for an international education in Japan has only increased.
Luckily, Japan is keen to attract international students, too!
Recently the Japanese government implemented a target to increase the number of foreign students in the country, and it now stands at around 300,000. Universities have also introduced a variety of initiatives to be more welcoming to international students, including:
- An easier, more online, application process
- An increase in the number of English-taught courses available
- Additional financial aid options
- Help finding a job after graduation
For many counselors, the Japanese university system is new and unfamiliar territory, and with no central application platform the process can be quite confusing!
So, in this blog post, we will take a look at the types of universities and courses on offer to your students, and how they can apply.
