Study in English in Japan
Students all over the world dream about studying in Japan, but some of them end up not going because of one major barrier: language. For others, distance is literally the biggest problem.

Aware of these reasons, 13 universities were chosen by the Japanese Government to be the gateway for change: thanks to this initiative, they now offer courses in English and the entrance exams are taken in the student’s home country. Courses in all major fields are available, from Medicine to Engineering to Liberal Arts, Life Science and Art. Even interdisciplinary courses are available, so it is easy to find a fit.

These 13 universities were part of a project called Global 30, which helps them to become more internationalized. The project also helps the university to provide their international students with a friendly environment at school, living and housing support. Most of these universities also have a Career Center, where you can find support to build you career in Japan. 12 of the Global 30 universities offer Japanese language courses, which is a plus for any student.

There are other universities in Japan who are not part of the Global 30 project but also offer courses in English and have great facilities for international students. Some of them include International Christian University, Akita International University, Ritsumeikan Asian Pacific Unniversity and Yamanashi Gakuin University (from April 2015). All of these universities welcome international students every year and have specific courses related to international relations, creating a strong global environment in campus.

Japan is making efforts to become more international and to be able to understand other cultures, in order to adapt itself to the current world order. By making the international access to Japanese education easier, the country can achieve its goal, and students from all over the world who go to study there can meet new people, get in touch with Japanese culture, and have the opportunity to study in the best Universities in Asia.
