World 100 member, Keio University, will host the “Experience Japan Exhibition 2021 Online” study in Japan fair on Saturday, November 20 (16:00–21:00 JST; 7:00–12:00 GMT).

26 universities—many of which are a part of the Top Global University Project—and other organizations from throughout Japan will take part, introducing various programs and scholarship information to those aspiring to study abroad in Japan.

Following on from last year’s event Keio University will hold the “Experience Japan Exhibition 2021 Online” study in Japan fair in a web-based format. 26 universities from throughout Japan, representing the largest number of exhibitors to date, will participate at the current EJE, which will run for two hours longer than last year’s event.

On November 5, the Japanese government announced an easing of the restrictions on entry of international students, business trips, etc., to Japan. While it may still take some time for circumstances to normalize to those in pre-pandemic times, Keio University, along with the other universities and participating organizations, is already furthering preparations for the day when many international students can again be welcomed to Japan. The EJE will serve as a platform for Japanese universities to present the diverse programs that they offer.

Even as the pandemic has widened the realm of opportunities for online cultural exchanges, it has also revealed how vital face-to-face communication is in people’s lives. Studying abroad in person does more than broaden one’s career horizons; it also equips students with lifelong intercultural skills. This is why the Turing Scheme exists: to allow students to equip themselves and be active members of global society. Presented by Keio University’s Vice-President, Motohiro Tsuchiya, and the British Council’s Director for Japan, Matthew Knowles, this seminar is aimed at emphasizing the importance of study abroad for students in the United Kingdom, demonstrating why Japan is an essential international partner, and providing information about funding opportunities through the Turing Scheme.
