Tell your friends about Japan:
Education received in Japan has long been the key to a successful career, especially in the developed countries of the world. Those wishing to join the number of students studying at a prestigious Japanese university often believe that obtaining such a diploma is almost impossible due to language difficulties and prohibitive prices. We will examine in more detail what is needed to become a Japanese student.WHAT IS SPECIAL IN JAPANESE HIGHER EDUCATION?
Of course, the most prestigious universities in the world are located not only in Japan, but also in other parts of the world. So why is Japanese education gaining popularity? Here are the main reasons for studying in Japan:
Higher education institutions in Japan are considered very popular, and five of them are in the top 100 best universities in the world.
The curriculum is very diverse, due to which a wide selection of specialties is provided.
Specialists trained in Japan have incredible demand in the labor market. This is especially true for such areas as IT technology, banking, pedagogy, and engineering.
After graduating from the university, you can stay in the country and take a prestigious position in companies with world names.
Japan is one of the safest countries in the world. Despite the crazy rhythm of Japanese cities, being here is safe thanks to the country’s policy to ensure law and order.
Legislative changes regarding foreigners make it possible to draw up documents for entry into the country without much difficulty, and subsequently stay here to work.
The system of government grants, scholarships, etc. can provide financial independence at the time of education.
Tuition at a Japanese university is lower than at American and European universities.
IS IT DIFFICULT TO BECOME A STUDENT OF THE JAPANESE HIGHER EDUCATION INSTITUTION?
For several years now, the government of Japan has been implementing legal norms in national legislation in the field of education aimed at simplifying the procedures for applying for studies at local higher education institutions to foreigners. Moreover, the authorities are set to rapidly increase the number of foreign students.
It is important that the authorities made significant simplifications to visa formalities, including and for foreigners who decide to come to study.
The Land of the Rising Sun has become open to those wishing to receive a prestigious education. But there is one important point that often becomes an insurmountable obstacle to Japanese education – knowledge of the Japanese language.
SIGNIFICANCE OF THE JAPANESE LANGUAGE FOR FOREIGNERS WHO DECIDED TO GET EDUCATION IN JAPAN
Despite the openness of Japanese universities to foreign students, the country’s educational institutions are characterized by a significant shortage of study programs in English. This is due to the lack of qualified personnel who speak English at the appropriate level.
Therefore, before proceeding, it is necessary to go through the so-called pre-university training in a language school. Why is this needed? Everything is very simple! Since the lion’s share of educational programs involves studying in Japanese, without a knowledge of Japanese, a foreigner will not be able to graduate and master the profession for a trivial reason – a lack of understanding of what is being taught.
