Q. What are the requirements to study in Japan?
To study in Japan, you must get a long-term visa after you obtain the Certificate of Eligibility as a student from the Immigration Bureau of Japan.
To obtain the Certificate of Eligibility, you will be asked for the following information:
- Do you really have intent to study in Japan
- Do you have necessary and sufficient Japanese language ability
- Do you have enough money to support yourself during your study abroad in Japan
Q. What is the “necessary and sufficient Japanese language ability”?
To enroll in Japanese language schools, you are required to have Japanese language ability equivalent to N5 in JLPT (Japanese Language Proficiency Test). It means you can read and understand typical expressions and sentences written in hiragana, katakana, and basic kanji, and also you can listen and comprehend conversations about topics regularly encountered in daily life and classroom situations, and you are able to pick up necessary information from short conversations spoken slowly. It will be an indication of N5 that you have studied Japanese for a total of about 150 hours.
To enroll in collage/university, you must have N2 in JLPT.
Please check the website below for the information of JLPT:
Q. To enroll in a Japanese school, what fees should I expect?
First, you need to make payment for the screening fee and the retainer including paperwork and translation fee for immigration. After your Certificate of Eligibility is approved, you have to pay the admission fee, tuition and other expenses to the school. You may have to make payment for your first 3 months rent at this time as well. Also you need funds for applying for a visa in your country and you must purchase airline tickets. You will have living expenses after you come to Japan.
Q. What is the amount of “enough money to support myself during my study abroad in Japan”?
The Immigration Bureau doesn’t officially release the amount of money, but many Japanese schools give applicants a rough indication; 2,000,000 - 3,000,000JPY(18,100 - 27,200USD at the rate of 110JPY to a dollar) in your/your sponsor’s bank account is necessary. If you don’t have it, you can have your family or other relatives as your financial sponsor(s).
Unfortunately we cannot either sponsor you or find a sponsor for you.
Q. Are there any possible scholarships I can apply for?
Generally speaking, there are very few scholarships which fully cover the whole cost of studying in Japan. If there are any, they are for top performers and highly competitive.
Also, most of the scholarships will cover a part of the tuitions or some living expense only. Therefore, it is very difficult to make a plan to study in Japan relying only on wining scholarships.
Q. Can I have a part-time job during my study abroad in Japan?
If you are approved by the Immigration Bureau, you can work up to 28 hours per week with a student visa.
Q. Is there an age limit to obtain a student visa?
There is no age limitation to obtain a student visa. However, there are some conditions and one of them is: you must apply within 5 years from the graduation of your final education. If you graduated from school more than 5 years earlier, you have to submit an essay to explain why you want to apply for school in Japan.
