Study in Japan

Considering studying in Japan? Read our guide to find out everything you need to know about Japanese universities and culture, and what steps to take next.

Known for making things smaller, faster, and above all first, Japan was until recently the second-largest economy in the world (it’s now third, behind the US and China). Its economic strength is at least partly due to the strong research and development industry that underlies successful international brands such as Nissan, Toyota, Panasonic, Canon and Sony – as well as producing robots for every need imaginable. 

Unsurprisingly, an excellent higher education system lies behind all this innovation. In the 2013/14 QS World University Rankings, the highest ranked Japanese universities are the University of Tokyo at 32nd, Kyoto University at 35th and Osaka University at 55th.
