Of­fer­ing the best in Ja­panese ed­u­ca­tion

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - HIGHER EDUCATION -

REP­RE­SEN­TA­TIVES from 27 Ja­pan uni­ver­si­ties and eight Ja­panese lan­guage in­sti­tu­tions will gather at Hall 4 of PWTC, Kuala Lumpur on Dec 14 and 15 for the Fa­con Ed­u­ca­tion Fair 2013 In­cor­po­rat­ing Post­grad­u­ate Stud­ies.

Prospec­tive stu­dents are in­vited to come and get a look at the higher ed­u­ca­tion op­por­tu­ni­ties in Ja­pan.

Apart from ob­tain­ing in­for­ma­tion on var­i­ous pro­grammes of­fered by uni­ver­si­ties and Ja­panese lan­guage in­sti­tu­tions, stu­dents will be able to get clar­i­fi­ca­tion on mat­ters such as visa pro­ce­dures, in­for­ma­tion on ap­pli­ca­tion of schol­ar­ships, lec­tures, tu­to­ri­als, ex­tra-cur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties or even daily Ja­panese life­style from univer­sity staff who are at the Fa­con Ed­u­ca­tion Fair, one of the largest fairs in Malaysia.

Ex­pe­ri­enced coun­sel­lors will be on hand to ex­plain and clar­ify mat­ters per­tain­ing to the Ja­panese ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem and way of life. Ad­vice and clar­i­fi­ca­tion on schol­ar­ships and tu­ition fee re­duc­tion schemes can also be ob­tained through th­ese friendly coun­sel­lors.

Prospec­tive stu­dents who are in­ter­ested to study in Ja­pan who have yet to de­cide what course to pur­sue or which uni­ver­si­ties to at­tend can at­tain an­swers to their ques­tions at the Study in Ja­pan Pavil­ion at the fair.

In July 2008, Ja­pan has an­nounced the “Frame­work of the 300,000 In­ter­na­tional Stu­dents Plan” whereby the Ja­panese gov­ern­ment will take var­i­ous mea­sures to at­tract and ac­cept 300,000 in­ter­na­tional stu­dents from all over the world to study in Ja­pan by 2020.

Since then, the Ja­panese gov­ern­ment has been work­ing closely to­gether with rel­e­vant gov­ern­ment agen­cies, Ja­panese uni­ver­si­ties and other in­sti­tu­tions of higher learn­ing in Ja­pan to im­ple­ment sys­tem­atic poli­cies to dis­sem­i­nate a con­sis­tent pack­age of in­for­ma­tion on study­ing in Ja­pan.

The Study in Ja­pan Pavil­ion at Fa­con Ed­u­ca­tion Fair is ex­pected to gen­er­ate even greater pub­lic­ity for the plan. Ja­pan of­fers this choice of tech­no­log­i­cal ad­vance­ment in all fields of study plus the added value of tra­di­tional Ja­panese cul­ture and hos­pi­tal­ity.

Aca­demic pre­sen­ta­tions on Study in Ja­pan will also be avail­able dur­ing the fair.
