Announcement from the Coordinator for Study in Japan

indian students as of 201705 3

Please see record for number of Indian students studying in Japan. Indian students most welcome. Taking UTokyo as an example, the number of students increased from 29 to 85 between May 2012 and May 2017.
Though the increase is pleasing, it is still not enough at all, compared to the 107,260 Chinese students in Japan (1,801 in UTokyo) as of May 2017and around 200,000 Indian students in the USA in 2016-17. We are expecting many more Indian students in Japan taking the size of the population in India.

There are more than 1,369 Japanese companies in India as of October, 2017. In addition to automobile companies, electronics firms, heavy machinery firms have also begun operations in India. Furthermore, there are a wide range of service firms from advertising to logistics. The Japanese Government is also providing official assistance to develop several infrastructure projects across India including the Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor, Delhi Freight Corridor, Metro Rail and ring road projects and Mumbai-Ahmedabad High Speed Railway. The Japanese Government is also involved with the development of the Indian Institute of Technology Hyderabad (IIT-H). The wide gamut of Japanese investment activities in India has created a demand for people who understand Japanese culture and technology. This need for skilled human capital will only increase in the years to come.


In Japan, an increasing number of multinational and smaller companies are hiring international graduates of Japanese universities to work in Japan. As they expand their operations abroad there is a growing need for a diverse and multicultural workforce for Japanese companies.

Life as a student in Japan

Japan is both modern and also steeped in tradition – the latest technology and ancient crafts; buildings of modern design beside ancient temples; bustling cities and the idyllic countryside. This makes the experience of studying in Japan exciting and exceptional.

Through university clubs, a student can learn traditional Japanese painting, the art of animation, tea ceremony, martial arts, calligraphy, classical music and much more. Students can also take part in field trips around the country organized by the university.

Japan has one of the lowest crime rates in the world and large cities like Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto are extremely safe and easy to get around with the excellent public transportation system. The bullet trains (Shinkansen) connect all parts of Japan, making travelling around the country an enjoyable experience.
