13 universities were selected by the Japanese Government to be a member of the “Global 30” Project. These selected universities aim to nurture internationally competent individuals by creating an academic environment where international and Japanese students can learn from one another and build lasting international bonds that will propel them into the international scene.
No Japanese Proficiency Required at the Time of Admission
With the introduction of the “Global 30” Project, the best universities in Japan are now offering degree programs in English. By doing this, these universities have broken down the language barrier which was one of the obstacles preventing international students from studying in Japan. A range of courses in a number of fields are offered in English at the universities under the “Global 30” Project.
Take Entrance Examinations at Home
You might imagine that you have to be in Japan in order to apply. However, the universities under the “Global 30” Project now offer paper and interview-based admissions procedures which allow international students to apply while still in their respective countries. Interviews can be done from their current location using TV conference systems or other devices.
Immerse Yourself in Japan
The universities under the “Global 30” Project provide high-quality instruction in Japanese language and culture while also allowing students to gain a valuable degree in another subject. When you learn Japanese, you become not only proficient in the language but also gain an insider view of the culture difficult to appreciate otherwise.
