The Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) in Japan is planning to allow national universities to accept more international students, starting spring 2022.
Up until now, there has been a cap for the number of international students in national universities, but this limit will be eased. MEXT will reassess the cap for each university to allow national universities to increase the number of international students based on the number of teaching staff and classrooms it has. MEXT will be making these assessments next year in Summer 2021, and will announce the official decisions thereafter.
MEXT is also considering allowing national universities to set their own tuition fees for international students. In principle, all students pay equal tuition fees regardless of nationality and faculty at present, but this shift means that tuition fees for international students may change in the future.
