Active international student exchange is now taking place throughout many parts of the world, and there are now said to be more than 1.5 million foreign students studying around the globe. Among them, 117,302 (as of May 1, 2004) are studying in Japan.

The greatest reason for studying in Japan is its academic environment where one can study state-of-the-art technology and acquire the knowledge that enabled Japan's phenomenal postwar economic growth. Whether it is electronics, Japanese literature, medicine or international business administration, Japanese universities and other institutes of higher education can offer course studies or research programs of virtually any field. Many institutions of higher education, such as universities and junior colleges, are well equipped with fine research, computer, and library facilities and enable students to carry out their research in an excellent environment.

International students wishing to work in Japan must obtain a permit for extra-status activities from the Immigration Bureau before they start working. However, the permission is given only when it is clear that such activity does not affect his/her primal activity. Part-time job by college students and pre-college students is permitted to be within the scope that will not be a hinder to their study which is their primal activity. For example, college students are permitted to work up to 28 hours a week (occasional students and research students, up to 14 hours a week).
