1 International Students in Japan: Issues of Recruitment and Admissions International Recruitment and Admissions for English-Taught Degree Programs 125 th Anniversary Hall, Toyo University October 2, 2015 Hiroshi Ota, Ph.D. Professor, Center for Global Education Hitotsubashi University

2 Hiroshi Ota Purpose of the Seminar Japanese HEIs need to shift their international recruitment and admissions from the oldfashioned, on-campus exam-based approach to the global standard model, diversifying their markets into the world. English-taught degree programs can be a breakthrough on this matter. 2

3 Hiroshi Ota Overview of Japanese H.Ed. and Int l Student Polices Large private sector 79% of HEIs and 73% of students Reasonable tuition fees (US$) National and local public: $6,800 7,800 Private: humanities and social sciences: $9,600 STEM and others: $12,000 Gov t scholarships: 28% of int l students 100,000 International Student Plan ( ) 300,000 International Student Plan ( ) 3

5 18-year-old Population and Participation and Acceptance Rates 250 (10T) Acceptance Rate = newly matriculated college and junior college students / total college and junior college 93.1% (2014) 100% 90% year-old population (age cohort) College Participation Rate = newly matriculated college and junior college students / 18-year-old population 56.5% (2015) % 70% 60% 50% 40% newly matriculated college and junior college students 30% 20% 10% % Source: MEXT 5

6 Hiroshi Ota An Age When All Are Accepted to College Enrollment problems (low domestic enrollment) Private: Undergraduate (esp. single-department colleges in the provinces) National: Postgraduate (esp. humanities and social sciences) due to the expansion of graduate schools capacity: 90,000 in ,000 in 2009 Graduate programs in humanities and social sciences: Excessively dependent on int l students due to low incentive for domestic students. Becoming difficult to recruit enough qualified students into STEM field programs. Private univs. which do not meet their authorized enrollment capacities: 43.2% (250), two-year colleges: 61.0% (192) 6

7 Hiroshi Ota Objectives and Policy Rationales for Increasing Int l Students Institutional level: Polarizing For internationalization: English-taught courses and programs for both exchange and degree-seeking int l students For survival: Revenue-generating approach National level: Diversifying Traditionally aid and mutual understanding approach Prevailing skilled migration approach with career placement service 7

12 Hiroshi Ota Typical Path to Univs in Japan UG program: home country Japanese language school private univ s UG program Graduate program: home country Japanese language school private univ s UG program national univ s graduate program Leading research univs: undergraduate graduate (en-suite model) Reflecting the capacity of enrollment, discipline, and research: private national Tuition fees and scholarships: private national Univs. heavily rely on the domestic market of int l students 12

13 Hiroshi Ota English-Taught Degree Programs Intention: Lower the language barrier and break into the new market to increase the inflow and diversity of international students. Number of univs. offering ETD programs Undergraduate: 6 (2008) 28 (2014) Postgraduate: 47 (2008) 76 (2014) Number of ETD programs (2015) UG: 46 programs (national: 24, L. public: 3, private: 19) PG: 456 programs (national: 385, L. public: 8, private: 63) Source: JASSO 13

14 Hiroshi Ota English-Taught Degree Programs ETD programs of 13 Global 30 univs. 245 programs (UG: 37, PG: 208) (2015) 5,200 students including 1,600 Japanese (2014) Majority of ETD programs in Japan are Source: Global 30 and JSPS Small scale: show window (branding) of so-called internationalization for the domestic market Mainly intended for Japanese and returnees: virtual study-abroad model (Shimauchi 2012) 14

15 Overseas Info. Center Differences of International Student Recruitment and Admissions Japan JASSO s 4 centers and 55 Study in Japan resource centers Online application Rare (paper-based application) Very common Required test score Foreign credential evaluation process Screening method Application fee Using commissioned recruiters Transfer students Conditional admissions Affiliated language school Scores of EJU incl. academic subject tests or JLPT and TOEFL Very rare (virtually nonexistent) On-campus entrance exam and interview Expensive (JPY35,000 US$300) and no credit cards accepted Not common in general, but lowertiered private institutions use Very rare Nonexistent Not so common (private universities only) Other Countries British Council: 229, CampusFrance: 103, IDP: 75, DAAD 14, EducationUSA: 400 Language test, e.g. TOEFL or IELTS, score only Processed by national center or NPO evaluators and institutions Document screening only Less expensive (avg. in US: $40-60) and credit cards accepted Quite common except US Very common in US with credit transfer and articulation programs Quite common Quite common 15

16 Urgent Matters: Improvements of Int l Recruitment and Admissions Process Student quality control: shift from input to output control (admissions based on minimum standards) Quantity brings quality (to secure critical mass) Need to expose HEIs to the int l student market abroad and let them tackle the market mechanism. Hiroshi Ota Reform old-fashioned admissions process, e.g., hard copy-based application and on-campus exam, to reinforce the recruitment capacity abroad. 16

17 Hiroshi Ota Urgent Matters: Improvements of Int l Recruitment and Admissions Process Need to embark on proactive recruitment and a smooth, user-friendly admissions process Online-based application and common application Document-screening only method (pre-departure admissions) and online interview Increase transfer admissions from HEIs abroad Multiple admissions, online payment with credit card Establish a national center for foreign credential evaluation to support HEIs int l admissions offices 17

18 Hiroshi Ota Challenges and Opportunities Cast off the old successful experience in the era of the 100,000 Int l Student Plan that has delayed reforms and internationalization. Improve pre-departure arrangements including accommodations and scholarships for newly accepted int l students. Only 23.4% of int l students live at student dormitories Reform the academic calendar: introducing the quarter system could be a solution?? 18

19 Hiroshi Ota Challenges and Opportunities English-taught degree programs Can gain access to the greater but more competitive market Revisit Study in Japan : Why study for a degree in English in Japan? Stepping stone to a third country? Employment opportunity? Quality assurance: programs, faculty, and students Many ETD programs do NOT welcome int l students but intended for Japanese students. Admission is not science but art. 19
