Event Programme and Registration

The Experience Japan Exhibition seeks to introduce the growing range of study and research opportunities available in Japan.

Several leading Japanese universities will be attending the event to provide information on their exciting programmes, as well as about the various research opportunities, summer courses and other options open to international students. They will also provide information about the variety of scholarships and research funding available to help you take full advantage of these learning opportunities. From joining a cutting-edge research team at a top-tier university to studying Japanese at your own pace in a custom-made language course, Japan has no shortage of options to give you the study abroad experience you’re looking for.

This year’s line-up of seminars will cover the basics about local life, as well as allow you to hear directly from individuals who have lived, studied, and conducted research in Japan. Guest speakers will be delivering presentations that provide insights into the Japanese language, and the experience of being a researcher in Japan. There will also be a special seminar on the ever-popular Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) Programme.

The event is hosted by Keio University, co-hosted by the British Council, and supported by JSPS and other funding agencies.
