Since the 1990s, the Japanese education system had been in a reform phase, trying to improve its efficiency and meet the global standards of education. In the early 1990s, Japan experienced a decline in the population of students less than 18 years of age, the prospective age of applicants for various courses in universities. There was an increase in the competition among the universities, and too many of them (national, public and private universities) were competing for too few students. With the changing situation, Japanese universities faced many new challenges, which played a key role in creating a globally competent Japan for the 21st Century.

Pedagogical Objectives:

  • To discuss the challenges that lie ahead of the Japanese universities
  • To discuss Japanese education system.
