The land of sushi and cherry trees, Japan, ranked second best study destination in Asia in the latest survey from Education.com’s
This should come as no surprise considering that this great country is ahead in most global rankings, but this time it was driven by the students insights. It was the result of a data-driven comparative analysis of seven unique categories that were decided by students regarding their most important considerations when choosing a study abroad destination and existing country rankings.
In a survey of over 20,000 international students, they were asked their priorities when choosing a study abroad destination, which resulted in these final categories:
● To experience a new culture
● To achieve career goals
● To have an adventure
● To make new friends/widen professional network
● To access higher quality teaching
● To study for free
● To attain a visa
Using this data, a detailed and objective research of several global rankings ensued to consider other factors relevant to students living abroad, such as quality of life, cost of living and work opportunities, all of which were assigned to one of the chosen categories. And the results are in: Japan ranked second best study destination in Asia!
The third largest economy in the world, Japan also happens to be an educational powerhouse, home to three of the top 100 universities worldwide. Though costlier than some of its Asian counterparts, it’s very safe for foreign visitors and offers generous scholarships and low tuition fees to international students, along with improved employability both in Japan and abroad upon graduation.
