Tokyo University has announced that one of the super 30 students from India would get a scholarship from the university for their higher education in Japan. The announcement came as a part of an event where a team of professors of Tokyo University interacted with students of Super 30 from India.
The brainchild of Patna based teacher, Mr. Anand Kumar, Super 30 is a coaching institute where 30 meritorious students get selected from economically backward section of the society every year and get trained and coached for preparing them to compete in various Joint Entrance examinations in India. These trainings are provided to these students without charging a penny from them and the institute has rose to prominence with its staggering success rate every year. Since its inception in 2002, more than 300 students have cracked the IIT-JEE and have undergone quality studies at the prestigious educational institute.
In order to make life of Indian students a little easier for higher studies in Japan, the institutes in Japan has decided to offer fee waiver of almost 100 percent to Indian students and thus are offering one lucky student among Super 30 to get the chance. The Japanese Government is also planning to lure Indian students to pursue higher studies in Japan which would help in stabilizing the decreasing number of Indian students who opt for higher studies in Japan due to lack of educational opportunities available in the country.
At present, over 560 Indian students are studying in Japan and efforts are being made to increase the number significantly. Indian students have always shown interest in studying at Japan for ages and students from educational and research backgrounds have come here in numbers for past many years as it was their popular destination for studies. The universities in Japan have also initiated courses in English which further doesn’t burden the students to learn the Japanese language as well.
