Japan: debunking the "inward-looking" myth


This research was conducted by Education Intelligence


The British Council surveyed Japanese students in September 2014 to understand their sentiment towards overseas study and to uncover their perceived obstacles and advantages. The research, an online survey of over 2,000 students and recent graduates across major regions of Japan, found that Japanese student sentiment towards overseas study is similar to, if not more favourable than, the sentiment of their US and UK counterparts.
