Japanese students’ outbound mobility

Japanese education consultants are increasingly competing with universities to send language students abroad, largely due to government campaigns introduced in the past decade, the Japan Association of Overseas Studies has found.

Overall, the language market for Japanese has been on the rise, and financial support from the government entices prospective language students to study abroad through university programmes. While the US saw a decline, the Philippines and Canada both recorded increases. This means that the Philippines has leapfrogged the UK to become the fourth largest destination for students travelling abroad with JAOS members.Canada is an alternative destination to the US. The US is less attractive because of security and immigration issues.

While the US is still the largest outbound destination for Japanese students, its numbers fell by 1,130 – and language students made up the biggest proportion of that decrease. ELT schools in the Philippines provide different kinds of values such as affordable price, one to one lessons and Japanese supporting staff on the spot.
