The purpose of this study is to point out the current issues about the policy of universities in Japan. In recent years, the government and the universities in Japan have focused on constructing new academic and educational institutions or programs for cultivating global human resources in universities. However, the government and the universities do not put a focus on the fact that there are Japanese high school students overseas who do not choose to go to universities in Japan, rather, other countries. This article clarifies the reasons why they decided to go to universities in other countries by semi-structured interview research: 4 students in Canada, and 6 students in Australia. This research result shows as follows: 1) They have been in anticipatory socialization systems globally. Based on 1), 2) They choose university from a respective viewpoint of admission and educational systems. 3) They put an importance on connecting their skills or academic knowledge to their future, such as higher education or occupation globally. The government and the universities should rethink tasks in terms of getting global human resources with a broader perspective.
