Experience Japan Exhibition 2014

Saturday 15 November 2014, 13:00-18:00
Royal Society, London

Japan is back in the spotlight. Sentiment has been particularly upbeat over the past year, especially after Tokyo’s successful bid to host the 2020 Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games and the recent designation of Japanese cuisine (Washoku) as an Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO in December 2013. This attention manifests itself in higher education as presidents and vice-chancellors of key universities in Japan and the UK came together to voice further dedication for exchange between the two nations at the Japan-UK Universities Conference for Collaboration in Research and Education this past May. Many of these same Japanese universities are back in the UK to take part in this year’s Experience Japan Exhibition.
Now more than ever, there are new, exciting opportunities for work and study in Japan. Come discover them at the 4th Experience Japan Exhibition!

The Experience Japan Exhibition (EJE) is a Japanese study abroad and job fair and the largest event of its kind in London, with over 700 in attendance last year. The growing number of English-language degree programmes at Japan’s universities offers you the chance to advance your knowledge in this fascinating country, whatever your level of study. A number of leading Japanese universities will have booths at the event to provide information on these programmes, as well as on the summer courses and other options open to international students.

There will also be a chance to find out about the variety of scholarships and research funding available to enable you to take advantage of these learning opportunities.

The event will also introduce other programmes that allow you to experience Japan, such as the Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) Programme. Now in its 28th year, the JET Programme is one of the largest language-exchange programmes in the world. There are almost 4,500 young people from around the world employed on the programme, working mainly as assistant language teachers throughout Japan.

Throughout the afternoon, a series of seminars will cover everything from the practicalities of living in Japan to the diversity of traditional and modern Japanese culture. In addition to panel sessions by people with experience of studying and working in Japan, experts will introduce participants to Japanese language and pop culture. A detailed programme is available on the website.

So come along and find your way to Japan – the experience of a lifetime awaits.

Admission is free of charge.
