JAOS 2019 Statistical Report on Japanese Studying Abroad

Dec.19, 2019

JAOS aims to promote the healthy development of the study abroad industry and provide instruction and guidance to improve and maintain quality of service providers in Japan. JAOS consists of 72 private and public-sector organizations based in Japan. In August 2019, JAOS organized the “JAOS 2019 Survey on the Number of Japanese Studying Abroad”, a data analysis of 42-member education agencies that provide study abroad services. The survey collected from these 42 organizations demonstrates the trend of the number of Japanese who used their study abroad support services. The survey was answered by all of 42-member organizations, and it reported 80,566 students studying abroad in 2018. The most evident result was the change from the period of American dominance as study abroad destination, and in addition, the trend demonstrated that study-abroad candidates chose from a wider variety of destinations.
