Being an International Student in Japan 2020-2021: Impact on Their Career Prospects


Under the coronavirus pandemic, its impact on student life and teaching styles have often been discussed worldwide inside and outside the education industry. However, in Japan, while its impact on economic relations of Japan with Asian countries has often been analyzed and discussed, its impact on Asian students in Japan and their career prospects have not been examined enough. This research discusses what difficulties and changes international college students in Tokyo have had since 2020 taking their points of view in terms of career prospects. The participants of this research are study abroad students from Asian countries in Japan who currently belong to a language college in Tokyo. The questionnaire reveals problems they have faced inside and outside the classroom and how they changed their career prospects referring to their academic background and original plans. The supports which hosting colleges and universities in Japan are expected to provide are also discussed.
