Many Malaysian students in Japan dream of seeing a Tsukuba University branch in Malaysia.


TSUKUBA: Tsukuba, a leafy town just 40km north of Tokyo, has a population of just 223,000 people — small in size by Japanese standards.

But the size belies its reputation. Planned in the 1960s as an overspill town for Tokyo, Tsukuba has drawn a myriad of research institutes and universities, including the famed Tsukuba University.

The 1985 Expo confirmed Tsukuba’s status as Japan’s leading hi-tech R&D hub. By 2000, the city hosted 60 national research institutes and now around 19,000 researchers (40 per cent of Japan’s total) reside there.

KUALA SELANGOR: The Japanese government and its higher education ministry are serious about the Malaysian government’s proposal for any of its universities to start branches here.

Japanese Ambassador to Malaysia, Dr Makio Miyagawa said to date, no Japanese university has set up a branch outside the country and Malaysia may be the first one to have such a branch.

“Our universities have been contributing to academics only inside Japan and has never made any attempt to set up (branches) outside of our country,” he said.

TOKYO: Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad today expressed hope to see Japanese universities having their branches in Malaysia to enable Malaysian students to not only be exposed to Japan’s education system, but also to learn its culture.

He said Malaysia had sent many students to Japan and they contributed much to Malaysia, but the rising costs had made it very difficult to send more students.

“We thought the best way is to have Japanese universities in Malaysia. We have been striving to get Japanese universities’ branches in Malaysia. Unfortunately, the law doesn’t allow them (for now).

“As you know, we have Australian and American universities in Malaysia, but no Japanese university,” he said in his commemorative speech after being conferred an Honorary Doctorate of the Doctor of Philosophy by Tsukuba University at its Tokyo campus here on Monday.
