If you are interesting in studying in the UK and live in Japan come to the Education UK Exhibition Japan 2008 this weekend. It's on in Tokyo at the International Forum near Tokyo Station on Saturday and in Osaka on Sunday.

Over 60 UK universities and colleges be at the fair, part of the Education UK initiative led by the British government.

World-famous shoe designer Professor Jimmy Choo (Professor Emeritus, University of the Arts London) will give a talk show about "UK Creativity", as well as exhibiting 12 pairs of shoes designed specially for this event. There will also be several other presenters who have been influenced by UK creativity, including Anne Suzuki, an actress who studied in the UK.

I will be at there on Saturday on the stand of my Alma Mater Southampton University.

Dates, times and venues:

Tokyo: Saturday 18 October 11:00 - 17:00
Tokyo International Forum (Yurakucho)
Entrance is free

Osaka: Sunday 19 October 13:00 - 18:00

If you've thought of studying in the UK, come to exhibition to meet people who can tell you what it's like, and what's on offer from the wide variety of institutions that will be there.

Or, if you just like shoes, come and hear Jimmy Choo talk at 1pm.
