Japan to organise education fair in Delhi, Bangalore

Friday August 10, 2012 06:23:17 PM, IANS

New Delhi: In a bid to enhance educational ties and to attract Indian students, Japan will soon be organising a special education fair in Delhi and Bangalore.

The education fair, which is part of the Indian and Japanese government's programme of building people-to-people ties, will be held in Delhi Aug 30, and in Bangalore Sep 1.

A total of 11 key universities from Japan will attend the exhibition.

"During the Japan-India Annual Summit Meeting held Dec 28, 2011, prime ministers of the two countries expressed their resolve to continue efforts to facilitate people-to-people exchanges between Japan and India," a statement from the Japanese embassy said.

"Japan Education Fair will be organised Aug 30 from 9.30 a.m. to 4.30 p.m. at Delhi Public School (DPS) R.K. Puram and Sep 1 from 10.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m., at Vivanta by Taj, M.G. Road, Bangalore," the statement said.

The universities from Japan, which will be present in the fair, are Doshisha University, Kyushu University, Meiji University, Nagoya University, Osaka University, Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University, Ritsumeikan University, The University of Tokyo, Tohoku University, University of Tsukuba, and Waseda University.

While no registration is required for the Delhi fair, students in Bangalore can register at http://www.uni.international.mext.go.jp.

India, with its huge pool of young population, has become one of the most sought after destinations for foreign universities with large number of students opting to go abroad for studies.

Though the US, Britain and Australia remain the most popular destinations, more and more students are also looking for an alternative in other Asian and European countries.

According to rough estimates, more than 2.6 lakh Indian students are currently studying abroad, while more than one lakh students are pursuing higher studies in the US, followed by the UK and Australia.
