Why Study in Japan?

After World War II in 1945, Japan was in ruin. Hiroshima and
Nagasaki had been wrecked by atomic bomb; factories burned to aches, nearly
everyone were jobless. The question then was; how will a devastated nation, with
zero natural resources, less than 10% arable land, feed over 100 million people.
To survive, the Japanese resolved to continually develop the capacity to import
raw materials, add value to them and export. This simplified approach to a
complex problem has turned Japan to the third largest economy in the world today.

Known for making things smaller,
faster and first, Japan’s economic strength is largely due to the strong
research and development industry that underlies successful international
brands such as Nissan, Toyota, Panasonic, Canon and Sony; as well as producing
robots for every imaginable need. Unsurprisingly, an excellent higher
education system lies behind all this innovation. You wouldn’t be wrong
to want to learn from this country.

Interestingly, the Japanese government is keen to attract
more international students, and has set a target of having 300,000 foreign
students in the country by 2020 (it reached the 100,000 mark in 2003). As a
result, universities are focusing on making life easier for foreign students,
from the application process all the way through to finding a job after graduation.

A point of attraction for international students to study in
Japan is the introduction of more courses taught partly or entirely in English.
Universities hire special staffs to support international students.
International students are allowed to start courses in September, instead of
April, which is when Japan’s academic year usually begins. There is also
increase in exchange programs with universities in other countries.

How to Apply to Study in Japan

Because living and studying in Japan is expensive compared
to many countries, the Japanese government has also introduced additional
financial support for foreign students. Various university scholarships and
grants are available through the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports,
Science and Technology (MEXT) and the Japan Student Services Organization
(JASSO).

The University of Tokyo, Kyoto University and Tokyo
Institute of Technology are the top three universities in Japan according to QS
World University Ranking 2019.

To apply for admission, rather
than submitting a GPA (grade point average) or other assessment grades,
students applying to universities in Japan, either at the
undergraduate or graduate level, are required to take entrance examinations.
The ‘Examination for Japanese University Admission for International Students
(EJU)’ is the standardized test for foreign students, designed to test basic
academic skill in areas of science, mathematics and ‘Japan and the world’. About
95% of national universities, 65% of public universities and 44% of private
institutions require the EJU for entrance.

Fees for the
tests range between ¥7,560 and ¥14,040 (US$67-$125) depending on how many
subjects you take, and the test is offered twice a year. But some fully funded scholarships
may cover this and all costs

In addition
to the entrance examinations, applicants are likely to be asked to provide a
completed application form, academic transcripts, proof of sufficient finances
to cover tuition fees, academic references, a valid passport and a couple of
passport-sized photographs.

Visa requirements to Study in Japan

International students intending to study for more than
three months in Japan will need to apply for a student visa. To do this, you
should first obtain a Certificate of Eligibility, which will be applied for on
your behalf by the Japanese institution you have been accepted by. Once this
has been issued, you will need to apply for your visa through your local
Japanese embassy or consulate. As well as the original certificate of
eligibility (and an additional photocopy), you will also need to provide a
valid passport, a completed application form and a recent passport-sized
photograph.

If you want
to work in Japan while studying, you’ll need to obtain ‘Permission to Engage in
Activity Other than that Permitted by the Status of Residence Previously
Granted’, which you can apply for at an immigration bureau once you arrive in
Japan. As a general rule, this permission will entitle you to work up to 28
hours a week during term-time and eight hours a day during official holiday
periods.

Tuition Fees, Living Costs & Funding 

Tuition fees
in Japan, although some of the most expensive in Asia, still look very
appealing in comparison to Western countries such as the UK or the US.
Typically, you can expect to pay between ¥535,800 and ¥1,725,966
(US$4,760-15,340) annually.

Average
costs of living in Japan are ¥89,000 (US$790) per month, or $9,480 per year.
Tokyo, unsurprisingly, is the most expensive place to live in Japan. Here, the
Japan Student Services Organization (JASSO) recommends a budget of
approximately ¥102,000 (US$905) per month to cover rent, food, insurance,
entertainment and other living costs, which works out at $10,860 per year.
