February 21, 2019

Ritsumeikan University tops national survey for the number of Japanese students sent abroad for the first time in its history.

The survey, covering the period April 1, 2017 - March 31, 2018, is carried out annually by the Japan Student Services Organization (JASSO).

Calculating the number of 'Japanese Students Studying Abroad Based on Student Exchange Agreements', the survey counts 'the number of Japanese students who commenced studying at foreign universities for the sake of education or research as a result of student exchange or other agreements between Japanese institutions of higher education and their foreign counterparts'.

More impressive news came in the form of JASSO's counterpoint survey, 'The Survey of International Students in Japan', which ranked Ritsumeikan University seventh in Japan for the number of inbound international students (2,141 students).
