To prospective students from abroad seeking entrance

We accept qualified and capable students from all countries to which the Japanese government issues student visas. Students at both undergraduate and graduate  levels are accepted.
If you are seeking to enter the undergraduate program, you will be required to take the Examination for Japanese University Admission for International Students, EJU). The The entrance examination process change frequently. Contact the entrance exams office for details.
Please note that you will be required to obtain some form of funding prior to coming to Japan. It will not be possible to work your way through college since we are located in a rural area where there are no high paying jobs. Your student visa will also prohibit you to work above predetermined number of hours.
Please also note that we generally cannot provide any financial support. We also do not have any Monbukagakusho scholarship slots, so please do not ask the professors to give you recommendations for them.
That being said, once you do enter the university, we may be able to provide inexpensive housing and waiver your tuition depending on your achievements. However, all this will be possible after you enter the university.

Sources of Funding

Currently, four major sources of funding available are:

  • The Monbukagakusho (The Japanese Government Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology) scholarships. By far, this is the most generous of the scholarships available. You should try to apply for this scholarship first. Contact  the Japanese Embassy in your country for details.
  • Scholarships from other organizations. JASSO (Japan Student Services Organization) is  perhaps one of the first you should consider.
  • There may be scholarships given out by your country for students trying to study abroad.
  • Private funding, if you come from a wealthy background. There are financial support for privately funded exchange students as well.
Sources of information
  • Studying in Japan - the comprehensive study guide. Variety of information including the Monbukagakusho scholarships, student visa, living in Japan, etc. is available in several languages. A must see.
  • JASSO (Japan Student Organization) pages. Information on the JASSO scholarships, and the Japanese Language proficiency test.
  • BetweenWeb. Variety of information for studying in Japan including the EJU exam, available scholarships, student visas, living in Japan, etc. is available in several languages. Another must see.
A final note. We are located in a rural town. Thus, the excitement of city life is not here. However, the food, especially the fruits are delicious. Our town is well known for its spas. If you have never or rarely seen snow, you will see plenty here. The skiing is outstanding here as well. If you are seeking to get away from all the disturbances and focus on getting a decent education and achieving your goals, this is the place to be. We look forward to hearing from you/welcoming you as our student soon.
