As part of its efforts to promote internationalization, the Japanese government plans to establish a system to recognize universities in the country promoting global initiatives.
Japan also aims to expand the number of Japanese students abroad to 500,000 by 2033, Erudera.com reports.
This is the first time the government is introducing a certification system that will enable Japanese universities to strengthen their ties with their counterparts abroad.
At the same time, this initiative is also expected to help the country’s universities attract international talents.
Previously, there was no framework allowing the government to certify institutions that actively support programs that have an international impact, according to a report by Nikkei Asia.
