I just came back from a campus tour of Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University. When I heard of the university, it is in rural areas and maybe no one wants to go there, but I was wrong! Being in rural areas is ideal for students to study because there is any distraction. Also Beppu is a beautiful place and reminds me of the good old days (Showa jidai) in Japan. The international students can get the scholarships 30-100% of the tuition fees based on their Japanese and English levels etc. The dormitory with 24 hour security is next to the university for the 1st year student. The best thing is that they have more than 90% of employment rate in Japan - The hottest university in Japan and the prime minister Mr Abe recently visited the university!! I have started convincing my children to go to the university!
I would like to pass my words onto another Japanese teachers. The coordinator’s name and email address is below.
