Follow the guide to understand the procedure.

1. Why study in Japan?

An excellent education system and a reduced cost

Take advantage of an excellent education system – and tuition fees that are much lower than in other developed countries. What you learn in Japan will prepare you and even prepare you for the most competitive job markets.

Learning the Japanese language will allow you to enroll in a university and earn a highly respected degree, which will open up more possibilities for you.

Japanese-Language Proficiency Test (JLPT)

Once you have completed your courses and obtained a good JLPT grade (JLPT N2 should be your target), you will be in a good position to seek a position with a Japanese company. If you decide to stay in Japan, there will be a lot of opportunities. The Japanese job market is very dynamic and the Japanese economy is the third largest in the world.

Recognized knowledge

If, on the contrary, you decide to leave Japan after completing your Japanese training, your knowledge and experience of Japan will undoubtedly be highly regarded by your future employers, whether in your country or elsewhere.

Lack of manpower in Japan

The Japanese government has made it clear that it wants to increase the number of immigrants, including offering different types of visas to fill the labor shortage. If you are still thinking when the right time to study Japanese is, the answer is, now is the right time.

Quick learning of the Japanese language

You will learn the Japanese language faster by studying in Japan rather than just studying abroad. It is generally believed that it takes 10 months (with a lot of work) to 1 year to achieve a JLPT Level 2 grade, whereas it would take much longer (probably years) if you were to stay abroad. .

A rich culture

Discover a rich and fascinating culture. Japan is also a land of innovation and abundant creativity. Beyond the language, there is a lot to learn in Japan, especially on a human level …

A secure country

Enjoy a peaceful life. Japan is one of the safest countries in the world. Walk in the middle of the night in a deserted street without fear. Forget your wallet in a cafe and you will most likely find it there … In Japan, you feel really safe.

Excellent living conditions

Excellent living conditions. Universal health insurance, very reliable public transport networks, delicious, healthy food with unparalleled value for money, services of an irreproachable quality, a nightlife (for those who are interested) very rich and of course all the modern comforts you can hope for… This is also Japan.

Cost of life

You will find that the cost of living is not that high. There are many ways to save money. Check out our blogs on the different ways to save money in Japan.

Work for foreign students

Foreign students can work up to 28 hours per week in Japan and 40 hours on long vacation. Most students have chosen to work long hours during their long school breaks rather than travel or return to their countries in order to save more money than they can make during normal school days.

7. Good to know about studying in Japan

Differences between trainings


The duration of a regular undergraduate program at universities is 4 years, while programs in medicine, dentistry, some pharmacy and veterinary science are 6 years. Some universities have programs for part-time students such as audit students and credit-earning students. In addition to degree-programs or long-term research programs, non-degree, short-term programs are also available.

Junior Colleges

Normally, courses offered in junior colleges take 2 years to complete except for some courses such as the medical technology course or the nursing course, which take 3 years. In contrast to university education that puts emphasis on scientific principles or theoretical research and education, junior colleges focus on education that allows students to learn skills useful to them after their graduation. One-third of the junior colleges are women’s colleges where a majority of the courses offered are on humanities, home sciences, education and social sciences.

Professional Training Colleges

Specialized training colleges offering post secondary courses are called professional training colleges and is one of the institutions classified under higher educational institutions. These colleges provide the learning of know-how, technology and skills useful in one’s future job and life as well as to improve their education. There are various colleges in different fields such as the medical care, technology, culture and general education, business, personal care and nutrition, education and welfare, fashion and home science, agriculture and much more. Certification is available for the following professions.

Animator, movie director, producer, game creator, interior designer, architect, system engineer, auto mechanic, nurse, dietitian, chef, patisserie, beautician, public accountant, interpreter, translator, flight attendant, hotel staff, nursery teacher, home helper, fashion designer, jewelery designer and more.

Those courses usually take 2 years to complete but more than 30% of the students are taking the 3 and 4-year course. The special feature of a professional training college is the variety of courses offered according to the skill and certification required.

College of technology (kosen)

Colleges of technology (also commonly called as “Kosen”) are colleges offering comprehensive 5-year education programs (5 and a half year for mercantile marine) to lower secondary school leavers and are ranked alongside universities as higher education institutions. Colleges of technology offer education programs that develop hands-on engineers with focus on lab works, practical works and practical skills as well as having advanced theoretical knowledge. Though most departments in the colleges of technology are related to the industrial field, department on mercantile marine that aim to develop mariners are also available.

Graduates of colleges of technology receive high reviews from the industries that their rate of employment is almost 100%. Of late, apart from working upon graduating, more and more students are opting to further their studies in the major programs or transfer into the universities (the third year of the university programs).

There are approximately 470 international students, both Japanese government-sponsored and private-financed, enrolled in the colleges of technology at the moment.

The different training courses offered

The humanities

It is an academic discipline attempting to understand the essence of humanity by studying human mind and behavior from broad points of view. Included in the discipline are subjects such as: languages as means of expression and communication, history as a way of understanding the process of human development, philosophy and religion for pursuing the better life, and culture and civilization as products of humanity. Students go into various occupations including professorship and research.



religious studies

Japanese literature

foreign languages

history, archeology



cultural studies

library information science and others.

The social sciences

It is an academic discipline attempting to realize a better society by studying social structures and mechanisms and examining various social phenomena. Many subjects deeply related to business such as economy and commerce are provided. Students can develop intellectual horizons useful for any kind of occupation, including specialized professions such as lawyers and management consultants.



Political science


Commercial science

Business administration

Social studies

Social welfare


Information studies


The natural sciences

It is an academic discipline attempting to contribute to the development of scientific technology by studying various phenomena in the natural world. Many subjects such as mathematics and science (biology) are being taught from elementary education. However, the level of contents taught at universities is very high at the forefront of each field.






Earth science



It is an academic discipline attempting to study the knowledge and technology of “making things,” such as systems, tools, and facilities, to enrich a society and make it function more conveniently. In addition to providing skills for “making things,” engineering programs at universities are involved with the latest research in scientific fields which evolve everyday. This is the major difference from engineering courses at professional training colleges. Many students go into research and development professions after graduation.
