My guess is because of:

Which is pretty cool, especially if it's something they enjoy doing and if they can get a job doing it they are pretty lucky. I would count myself lucky doing a job in a geological field of work but life hasn't panned out that way.

Studying Japanese is stupid. Who the hell wants to learn the language of a country where you are treated like a celebrity and have beautiful girls throw themselves at you for being a foreigner?

Not going to get home sick?In all seriousness, the truth is that if I want to have an interesting job connected to what I'm studying right now, I'll probably have to move abroad anyway. So why not Japan Wink ? I'm not really that attached to the place I live in, more so to my friends. But I can always visit.

@ Pacal II

There are many universities in Japan that offer graduate programs in English. You would have to dig a little deeper into the specifics of the programs to find out if your concentration is applicable, but this might be one of your best options for entering Japan after you graduate.
Here are two schools that might be worth checking out:
http://www.oia.hokudai.ac.jp/​
http://www.sophia.ac.jp/​eng
A lot of these programs offer substantial financial aid packages for foreigners.

Thanks, I'll definitally check those out. Japan is definitally a viable option, since many companies and institutions do research in nanotechnology (my course of studies) there. Of course it all depends how well I'll do in my current studies, but a couple of years down the road. Who knows? Wink

Ooo more new people. Excellent Smithers. Not sure who my Smithers is here. Work on that later. Anywho, a big ANN wlecome to Akane the Catgirl and faintsmile1992. You have good taste Akane as Jesu is pretty awesome. I knew her here and elsewhere before she became famous. I can finally say I knew someone before they made it and became big. My life has meaning!!!!!! Embarassed Sorry. So +5 points to you. And you my dear faintsmile get +10 points. You get 5 for being gaelic like myself (represent!), and 5 more for practicing Muay Thai which means I won't be crossing you anytime soon lol. And +5 points to Hufflepuff because those poor bastards never get a shout out. As part of your welcome here you both are the proud recipients of your very own mystery bag of goodies. *hands them each an orange/brown paper bag* In your bags you will find such wonderful items as a handful of cobwebs, a hollowed out pomegranate shell, a strip of bark from a birch tree, and an empty game case for the classic Sega Genesis game Streets of Rage 2. Hopefully you'll enjoy your fine gifts and your stay here. And in case you didn't know Frisbeetarianism is the belief that when you die, your soul goes up on the roof and gets stuck.

If that’s all the Japanese boys do when they take you out drinking, consider yourself lucky.
