Study in Japan
スポンサーリンク

Why don’t you try to give up studying abroad because you’re worried about the cost of coming to Japan, the cost of going on to higher education, and the cost of living?

Let’s carefully examine the scholarship system and make good use of it!

Scholarships are less likely to pay the full costs required to study abroad, and most of them are used for a portion of their lives and tuition fees.Therefore, it is necessary to calculate the total cost of studying abroad specifically and make a solid financial plan, including self-financing, rather than relying solely on scholarships.

The number of scholarship recipients at 460 (63.4%) at national universities is 460 (63.4%), with the highest average of 75,000 yen, with the lowest amount being 156 (14.4%) at Japanese language education institutions at 30,000 yen.(JASSO research)

Types of economic assistance

  1. Scholarships
  2. Tuition fee exemption system (30%, 50% or 100% of exemption)
  3. Materials assistance (bus ticket, etc.)

Two methods for applying

  1. 【Application before coming to Japan】: apply before coming to Japan (minority)
  2. 【Application after coming to Japan】: apply after coming to Japan and entering the school (great majority)

Selection exam

documentation inspection, written examination about language, general education and/or field of study, oral interview etc.

Method for application

the most common way is to apply through the school where you are currently enrolled. (For details, consult with the person in charge of foreign students at your school).
