If you want high quality education, but at almost half the cost of universities in the West, you should come to Japan. Ehime University is a national university and its labs are well-equipped. Unlike master courses in many Western countries, the education is very research-oriented. You will be in the lab or in the field working on your own projects which your supervisor will help you to design. Our graduate schools have been accepting international students and providing instruction in English for over 20 years and even locally-based research is carried out with a global perspective. We make an effort to design research projects which will teach skills that you can use when you return home to enhance the sustainbility of your countries resources.
