Japanese edu fair to woo Indian students

Bangalore, Sep 8, 2013, dhns:

The University of Tokyo, in association with 12 other Japanese universities, hosted an education fair in the City.

The universities form the ‘Global 30’ group — a project introduced by the Government of Japan which aims to facilitate a global learning environment in Japanese universities. Accordingly, the 13 universities, including Tohoku University, Waseda University, Nagoya University, Kyushu University and the University of Tokyo, will now offer degree programmes in English on an introductory basis.

Hiroshi Yoshino, the Director of University of Tokyo, said the number of successful foreign applicants to Japanese universities has risen from 167 in 2012 to 430 this year. At the current time, there are about 500 foreign students studying at the University of Tokyo, out of which 42 are Indians. “We are tying up with Jawaharlal Nehru University, University of Delhi and also IIT,” Yoshino explained and added that the University of Tokyo is conducting student exchange programme with Delhi University.
