Research Areas and Themes

Currently, I am researching about international student’s mobility to Japanese universities and undergraduate student’s learning outcomes in COVID-19 pandemic. Firstly, despite the difficulty of international mobility due to the pandemic, why international students are still choosing Japanese universities as their destination? I am considering from both factors of the sending and receiving country. Secondly, do students have gained knowledge and skills through online education in Japanese universities? I am researching from the perspective of student learning habits and faculty’s teaching method.

Research Areas and Themes of the Students

Internationalization of higher education in Japan, International student’s mobility, admissions, Student’s quality assurance
