A plethora of Japanese universities opened their stalls in education fair, in Taj Coromandel, Chennai to woo Indian students. Representatives of several schools and universities attended the anxious lot of students who formed a beeline at the booths.
Yoshino Hiroshi, Director of University of Tokyo India Office, unraveled the prospects of education in Japan, he asserted on the facts that Japan is a beautiful and safe city with rich culture and heritage. He also highlighted the issue of generation of smart manpower is the need of the hour. Japan is in urgent need of good manpower in the field of engineering. He also raised his concern over the decrease in the number of Indian students in Japanese universities.
The Tokyo University ranked amongst the 20 best universities of the world, but it failed to woo maximum number of Indian students even after fetching a good rank. Only 727 students enrolled in different Japanese Universities last year. Currently Japanese Universities offer a gamut of courses to students which include Engineering, Sustainable Development of Language, Economics, Commerce and Humanities.
