Study in Japan Fair 2023 Benefits Vietnamese Parents and Students
The program was organized by the Vietnam Association of Japan Alumni (VAJA) under the Vietnam - Japan Friendship Association in collaboration with the Japan Student Services Organization (JASSO) under the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT).
Resuming after four years of postponement due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, Study in Japan Fair 2023 attracted the participation of nearly 70 Japanese universities, colleges and educational agencies such as Iwate University, Utsunomiya University, Osaka University, Chiba University, Hiroshima University, Wakayama University, Tokyo International University, etc.
The organizing committee arranged for each training facility a separate consulting booth, with consultants being representatives of Japanese schools.

At the consulting booths, students and parents of children intending to study in Japan were provided with information about occupations, learning environment, local culture, recruitment methods and registration, application, tuition fees, certificates, and job opportunities. Schools also provided detailed advice on support policies for international students such as accommodation, part-time jobs, and other benefits.
In addition to the direct consulting booths of Japanese schools, the Fair also introduced an overview of studying in Japan, MEXT government scholarships, JASSO scholarships, and the EJU exam, attracting the attention of many students.
According to Japanese Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary to Vietnam Yamada Takio, the Japanese government aims to increase the number of international students to 400,000 by 2033. Japan is promoting many different initiatives to become a nation chosen by international students. The organization of Study in Japan Fair is one of those initiatives. Ambassador Yamada Takio expressed his hope that through the Fair, Vietnamese students will take one step closer to realizing their dream of studying in Japan.
“We are very happy that many young Vietnamese people choose Japan as their destination to study and are attracted by our country's quality education, good environment, and diverse culture.
Vietnamese alumni who studied in Japan are always a bridge connecting the relationship between Japan and Vietnam. With the experience and knowledge gained during their study in Japan and the relationships cultivated during their time in Japan, they have been contributing significantly to the development of relations between Japan and Vietnam in many ways”, said Ambassador Yamada Takio.

As an alumnus who studied in Japan more than 35 years ago, Nghiem Vu Khai, Honorary Chairman of VAJA, said that educational exchange and cooperation activities play an important role in promoting bilateral cooperation between Vietnam - Japan, helping the two countries train a quality human resource to serve the development of both countries. VAJA members hope to help many outstanding Vietnamese students start their journey in Japan, serving as a bridge to build bilateral cooperation as well as educational cooperation between the two countries.
Yoshioka Tomoya, President of JASSO, stated an investigation regarding the situation of international students in 2022 was conducted by this organization. He said that there are around 37,405 Vietnamese students in Japan, ranking second, only less than the number of Chinese students.
The need to be provided with official and reliable information for those wishing to study abroad in Japan is increasing. Through the Fair, parents, pupils, and students can feel and thoroughly learn the necessary information for themselves about schools and institutions with good training quality in Japan.
