The Government of Japan is encouraging more students from Sub-Saharan Africa, especially South Africa, to enrol in Japanese higher education. Japan offers a variety of courses and scholarships for those pursuing undergraduate, post-graduate degrees; short-term research exchange programmes, visiting research programmes and more.

To that end, Japan will be hosting a virtual Study-in-Japan Fair for the South African audience, from 14-18 September 2020. This five-day event will entail a series of interactive 30-minute seminars starting at 09:00 (SA time) for the duration of the fair.

Universities South Africa supports this initiative within the context of promoting the internationalisation of higher education – also acknowledging that there is room for South Africa’s students to venture into global systems for study opportunities. USAf believes in the cross-pollination of ideas and knowledge, as well as in research collaboration among scholars from diverse backgrounds. Joint degree programmes and student and scholar mobility across regions are only some of the strategies by which internationalisation, globalisation and democratisation of knowledge can be achieved.

Studying in Japan is therefore an opportunity for South Africa’s students to share their knowledge and cultures and bring something back from their Japanese counterparts.
