Japan International Cooperation Center (JICE) Launches “Study in Japan” & Japanese Cultural Fair in Abu Dhabi

The Japan International Cooperation Center (JICE), Educational Development Office in Abu Dhabi will host a four-day “Study in Japan” informational fair along with traditional cultural activities in Abu Dhabi from November 18 – 21, 2016. Representatives from three leading institutions will be present to provide potential students and their parents with detailed information regarding the various courses offered. The institutions include Tohoku University, Nagoya University and Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University.


The aim of the fair is to promote Japan as a leading international study destination for Emirati nationals and UAE residents seeking internationally recognised tertiary qualifications within a country that is welcoming, safe and offers a plethora of unique cultural experiences.


International students at Japan’s educational institutions have been increasing year on year, with the latest statistics showing a total of 208,379 students from around the world choosing to study in Japan in 2015; an increase of 13.2% compared to the number of international students in 2014, which previously saw an increase of 9.5% compared to 2013 figures.


Among these, students heralding from the United Arab Emirates have also been increasing, with 207 Emirati nationals studying in Japan in 2015, resulting in a 107% increase compared to the number of Emirati nationals studying in Japan in 2014, which was an 89% increase on 2013 figures.


Says Mr. Tokuya Kanamori, JICE Abu Dhabi Office Manager: “Japan continues to proactively welcome students from the UAE and the Middle East to further their education in a wide variety of disciplines. Interest to study in Japan from Emirati nationals has been increasing not only because of the quality of the academic courses offered, but because both male and female students can further their academic pursuits within a safe, welcoming, respectful and nurturing environment, while at the same time experience unique cultural and sub-culture interests that only Japan can offer. We are happy to see the number of Emirati nationals choosing to study in Japan increasing. To encourage this trend further, JICE will also provide information on UAE and Japanese scholarships.”


University representatives from three of Japan’s leading tertiary educational institutions, including Tohoku University, Nagoya University and Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University, will be in attendance at the fair to personally provide information about their institutions, courses and facilities to interested students and their families.


Says Mr. Kanamori: “Both Tohoku University and Nagoya University are national universities with excellent departments of Aerospace Engineering. There are 6 Nobel Prize laureates from Nagoya University and 1 from Tohoku University. Established in 2000, Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University is relatively new, but a unique addition to the Japanese academic landscape in that almost half of their students are international students. Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University has been produced some Emirati graduates”.

All three participating universities offer courses in both Japanese and English.


A number of unique cultural experiences will also be showcased and experienced at the ‘Study in Japan’ event including traditional Japanese Tea Ceremony, Kimono Wearing, and Japanese Flower Arrangement.
