Kiyohiko Hamada, First Secretary at the Embassy of Japan in Nepal, remarks, “Japanese higher education, especially in streams like science and technology, is very advanced, and Nepali students wanting to study those subjects can benefit a lot if they choose Japan for studying them.”
Also, Nepal and Japan have cordial relationship, so Nepali students will feel comfortable in Japan and adjust easily, he adds.
Similarly, Dinesh Bhuju, Technical Advisor at TU who got his PhD degree from Chiba University in Japan, shares, “Nepali students can learn a lot from the universities in Japan and come back after finishing the course to implement them in Nepal. The way technology and culture go hand in hand in Japan is something worth learning for Nepali students.”
He further adds, “We want deserving candidates to get admissions to good universities in Japan with scholarships so that they can benefit from the learning experience, and come back to serve Nepal once they complete the course.”
It is not so easy to get admissions and scholarships to Japanese universities. So, to assist the students regarding the same, the fair is being organized, he informs.
