Five (5) important news that we would like to mention to all are follows;

  1. Application Deadline : March 30, 2020

Late submission will cause your students serious disadvantage for getting both scholarship and a dorm room.

  1. Japanese Language Requirement

One year (or more) of learning experience is MUST. It's not 'studying' period, but 'learning' period, which means one year self-taught should NOT be counted.

  1. Canceled Class: Japanese Economy and Society Class

Due to the professor's schedule, there is no 'Japanese Economy & Society' class in 2020-2021. If students are considering to transfer credits as your institute's credit, please notice this important information for them.

  1. JASSO / Kokugakuin Scholarship

 Although we still persist in trying to obtain JASSO scholarship, which is JPY 80,000 / month, we must say that the change of being awarded is rare.

Fortunately, last 6 consecutive years, most of exchange students have been awarded JASSO scholarship, but we are unsure about year 2019-2020.

To cover this, we are offering rent-free dorm room with meals worth of JPY 60,000-70,000 / month and Kokugakuin Scholarship JPY 20,000 month with little chore.

Please let students understand that the scholarship can be a small help to reduce students' financial burden, but it cannot be a primary resource of their financial support. They MUST obtain a private funding in accordance with their plans and lifestyle in Tokyo.Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact us anytime.
