Japan Keen to Have More Indian Students

Like a lot of other countries, Japan is keen to have more Indian students for undergraduate courses in its universities, which are currently restricted only to those// who know Japanese.

"We are pushing to open some of the undergraduate courses like biotechnology and neurosciences to Indian students," said Kiyoshi Kurokawa, science adviser to Japan's prime minister. He is also a professor at the National Graduate Institute for Policy Studies (GRIPS), Tokyo.

"I have suggested that at least 20 percent of courses being offered in University of Tokyo be taught in English so that more students from India and other countries can join them," Kurokawa told IANS.

With very few Indian students well versed in Japanese, the number of students going to Japan for higher studies is very miniscule.

Given that Japan has an aging population, the adviser is keen that more Indians study there and contribute to the need for well-trained manpower.

Kurokawa, who was here to attend a conference, said he was in talks with major Indian companies like Hero Group and Infosys for possible collaboration in training programmes.

Stating that Japan would like to invite several aspiring talents from Asian countries, Kurokawa stressed that the strength of his country and corporates lay in the focus on research and development.

While the Japanese government spends around three percent of the GDP on research and development activities, mega companies allocate two percent of their annual funds on research.

"Research and development is a strong asset for Japan," said Kurokawa.
