    If you’re a Philippine passport-holder, you’re going to need a student visa to attend school in Japan. The process involves:

    1. Completing the online application form
    2. Gathering all the required documents
    3. Submitting them to the Japanese authorities
    Note that you can’t start processing your student visa until you get accepted by a school in Japan. For the full list of details, please visit the Japanese embassy website or contact the Japanese embassy in Manila.

  • Are there scholarships available for studying in Japan? How can I finance my studies?

    There are many scholarships offered by the Japanese government and even the schools themselves. Visit the Edukasyon profiles of the schools you are interested in to check if they are offering any scholarships.

    There are also some international student loans available from different loan giving bodies. University representatives usually work in tandem with their financial aid department that focuses on helping students find options to finance their education.

  • Why should I study in Japan?

    Apart from sushi and ramen, clean streets and public bathrooms, fast trains and friendly people, Japan is well-known for its internationally recognized education. Out of its 780 universities, 20 were able to hold on to the top 100 spots of  Times Higher Education’s Asian University Rankings, with the University of Tokyo being ranked number one.

    It currently houses 200,000 international students, and it aims to attain 300,000 by 2020. To achieve this goal, the Japanese government has simplified the application process for foreign students, and they have also organized more courses to be taught in English.

    Moreover, many Japanese companies plan to hire more international students into their workforce, and some even have as much as a 10 percent quota.


  • What are the required languages for studying in Japan?

    Although Japanese is the native language of Japan, several colleges, such as the University of Tokyo offer courses in English. Sophia University is the first and only university in Japan to teach courses exclusively in English. However, if you wish to maximize the range of courses that you can choose from, we recommend that you have a basic understanding of Japanese.
