Guide To Studying in Japan
Active international exchange is now taking place throughout many parts of the world, and there are now said to be more than 1.5 million foreign students studying around the globe. Of them, 138,075 (as of May 1, 2012) are studying in Japan. What is it that attracts these students to Japan?
The greatest appeal of studying in Japan is its academic environment where one can study state-of-the-art technology and acquire the knowledge that enabled Japan's phenomenal postwar economic growth. Whether it is electronics, Japanese literature, medicine or international business administration, Japanese universities and other institutes of higher education can offer course studies or research programs of virtually any field.
Japan has had the most Nobel Prize recipients in Asia. Japan's expertise in chemistry, physics, medicine, literature, and various other fields is held in high regard all over the world.
Japan offers pacesetting technology and expertise in various fields including economics, business, information engineering, agriculture, medical care, animation, design and games. And the only way you can really come to grips with that advanced technology and expertise is by studying at a Japanese educational institution.
You need to decide what type of study you want to plan for. To become proficient in the Japanese language, you will need language study. For an academic degree or long-term research, you must plan for long-term study. For study for a year or less, without getting a degree, you can plan for short-term study. Also, you need to think carefully about how you will pay for your tuition and other fees, and your living expenses in Japan.
In addition to study programs for earning an academic degree, there are also short-term exchange programs that allow students to attend a Japanese university or graduate school while enrolled at a university in their home country. At universities in Japan today there are many exchange agreements with universities in other countries. If the university you are currently enrolled in has an exchange agreement with a Japanese university, this system can be used to study in Japan. If the university you wish to attend does not have an exchange agreement, or if you have already graduated, approximately 30 private universities have Japan study exchange programs that last for one year or less.
Most scholarships cover a part of a student's education and living expenses; only a few cover all the expenses. Therefore, students should check the cost of study in Japan carefully and plan their funding, without relying on a scholarship. Some scholarships for international students in Japan can be applied for in the student's home country before the student enters Japan, but most scholarships must be applied for in Japan after the student's arrival.
A person who wishes to enter Japan as an international student must complete the following procedures:
(1) Secure admission to a Japanese educational institution(Japanese-language institute, junior college, university, etc.).
(2) Posess home country's passport.
(3) Acquire a visa at a Japanese Embassy or Consulate in home country.
There are two methods of applying for a visa: (1) Applying for a visa without the issuance of a "certificate of eligibility for the status of residence"
(2) Applying for a visa upon the issuance of a "certificate of eligibility for the status of residence"
Examination for Japanese University Admission for International Students(EJU)
The EJU is an examination introduced in 2002 by JASSO, and is considered as a part of the entrance examination for international students who wish to study at universities or other higher educational institutions in Japan. This examination is conducted in Japan twice annually in June and November, and is scheduled to be held in about 17 cities outside Japan mainly in the Asian region. The examination subjects are Japanese as a Foreign Language, Science, Japan and the World and Mathematics. The exam questions are available in Japanese and English. Applicants will take the examination on the subjects and in the language designated by the respective college or university. Some of the universities consider the result and grades at senior high school without requiring students to sit the university's entrance examination. Therefore, if you apply to such a university, you could receive permission to enter that university without leaving your home country and prior to arriving to Japan.
