Kumamoto Prefecture will open a free cram school Sunday for junior high and high school students who want to enroll in universities overseas.

“Students nowadays have options to attend universities abroad thanks to globalization,” said Makoto Kamei of the prefectural government’s private education promotion division. “Unlike Tokyo, Kumamoto doesn’t have preparatory schools for foreign universities. We’re launching this school to help students from giving up on their dream of attending college overseas just because they’re in Kumamoto.”
