Studying in Japan costs lower than US & UK
The total cost of studying per programme in Japanese Universities is quite lower than Universities in UK and US. A two-day Japan education fair organized held in Gujarat at the Ahmedabad Management association (AMA) demystified the air.
Daisuke Kodama, the first secretary of Japanese embassy, New Delhi said that "There are over 80 national universities, 90 public universities and approximately 600 private universities. It's always advantageous for a person to know some amount of Japanese but it isn't compulsory for a foreign student. Many Japanese universities offer courses in English in selected disciplines”.
As part of `Global 30', the top 30 Japanese universities are inviting students from across the world.
Kodama further added “Typically, the cost of pursuing higher education in a Japanese university ranges from Rs 10 lakh to Rs 13 lakh, including the hostel fees. If you talk to any student studying in the US or the UK, the cost is much higher, almost two to three times. Moreover, many Japanese universities offer complete waiver of tuition fees to keep an international atmosphere on their campuses."
The president of Indo-Japan Friendship Association in Gujarat, Mukesh Patel said ”Japan has remained unnoticed in terms of higher education for Indian and more particularly Gujarati students. The whole objective behind organizing this fair is to break myths related to higher education in Japan and we are greatly enthused by the very encouraging response received in this direction."
