The Japanese Government is aiming at international brain circulation very seriously. The country is aiming to attract 400,000 international students by 2033. There was a fallout in the number of international students during the pandemic. However, post-pandemic, the Japanese Government has noted an increase. Moreover, the government plans to send at least 500,000 Japanese students overseas for education to fulfill the aim.
Future Education Panel Puts Down Long-Term Goals
The Future Education Panel of the Japanese Government has set out its plans for international brain circulation. The government plans to take measures to attract international students into the country. Also, the government would ensure that international students get great job opportunities in Japan after their studies. This is because Japan understands that the merits that come to study in Japan would need post-study work opportunities. These work opportunities will not only bring a better future to Japan but also make meritorious students into great professionals.
Previous Targets of International Student Numbers in Japan
The Japanese Government thus plans on increasing the mid-long term overseas study programs. This is essential to help more international students choose Japan for their higher studies. In 2022, there are 230,000 international students in Japan. This number was achieved after the numbers fell below the target during the pandemic. A 2008 target spoke about Japan getting at least 300,000 international students by the end of 2020. This number was hit down by the pandemic and now the numbers are getting back to what the Government targeted.
Thus, international students can now look forward to having a stable career in Japan. Japan is one of the leading countries in Tech. Additionally, the international acclaim that the country has in its living standards can make international students have a great lifestyle. The expansion in job opportunities will add to the same.
