One of the UK’s biggest assets is the quality of its education, which is a big draw for Japanese students who wish to study abroad. The UK ranks 3rd in the number of Japanese students who study internationally, after the US and China.
Japanese students appreciate the value of UK university programmes, which have a high reputation in Japan. One British university that has used this advantageously is Buckinghamshire New University. Their affiliation programme, which allows them to partner with quality educational institutes worldwide, permits students who are not able to move to the UK to study a UK university curriculum while remaining in their own country.
