Education Reform

Contributing to a revolution in university applications

In Japan today, universities depend on paper based standardized exams to measure students’ academic ability. Obviously, this leads to a very narrow perspective of students’ ability. In line with this fact, the bulk of Japanese pre-college education prepares students to do well on these paper based exams. However, more is required of students in this global age than the ability to provide answers to test questions. It is the ability to challenge problems which have no answers, to set goals in line with their personal strengths and abilities, and take action to work toward those goals. If universities adopt a multi-dimensional approach to measure the unique talents and potential of candidates, education in Japan will change. Our mission is to provide a platform and solutions for positive change in Japan’s university admis-sions field.

Achieving global standard education in Japan

Japan is said to be behind in global standard education. This is the product of an education system which puts heavy emphasis on admission test scores to judge students’ ability. On an individual basis, there are Japanese researchers and academics accomplishing great things on the global stage. We believe that students also have the potential to achieve this, and it should be fostered. By matching these teachers and learners, it will be possible to bring the global standard to Japan. We aim to continue to develop curriculum that acts as a bridge between global teachers and learners.

Offering the choice of universities from the world map

When compared with students from other Asian countries, the number of Japanese students who choose to study abroad is startlingly small. As international experience is extremely important in this era of globalization, this is an issue which needs solving. This issue does not stem from a lack of desire in students to go abroad, but it is rather a matter of not having the resources to seek the experience they want. The two major factors are a lack of supportive infrastructure and the language barrier existing between Japanese and English. We are working to assess and overcome these factors, and offer students the opportunity to pick their university from anywhere on the world map.
