Relatively low tuition fees and a variety of scholarships
Tuition fees in Japan compare favourably to other major study abroad destinations including the UK.
There is also a wide range of scholarship opportunities available to international students including full or partial tuition fee waivers or a monthly stipend. The Japanese Ministry of Education (MEXT)
also has some fantastic scholarships at all levels that offer an extremely generous monthly stipend.
And despite what you might think, living expenses are comparatively low in Japan. According to the Japan Student Services Organization (JASSO)
, average monthly spending for international students comes out to 138,000 yen including tuition fees, which is just £950!
