From The Director

Greetings,

It may not feel like it, but spring is just around the corner in most parts of Japan, and that means the start of a new school year in April. In early February all the secondary school exams were held. By now most kids know where they will be attending junior high and high school…or not. Universities are on a slightly different schedule. For foreign students, either living in Japan or overseas, who hope to attend a Japanese university (and study in English), the opportunities have never been better. The key entrance exams are held in November and June. This month we take a look at the fees and admission requirements for foreigners considering a Japanese university education.

Nothing raises concerns about financial planning like education costs. As in all financial areas, our objective is to help you get the best results possible. Please feel free to contact your financial advisor at any time. If you do not currently have an advisor at Select, please reply to this email and one of our senior consultants will contact you promptly.

Best Regards,

Imants Katlaps

Managing Director

IT'S BACK TO SCHOOL TIME, BUT WHERE TO GO

In early April, a new school year will begin in Japan. Some kids, who have managed to survive the country’s perplexing exam process will be moving on to private, national and public funded secondary schools, while both foreigners from overseas and Japanese will be seeking higher education.  With over 700 universities, encompassing public, private and national schools, and a reputation as a land that’s both on the cutting edge of new technological development and abundant in modern and traditional cultural riches, Japan is in many ways an ideal destination for study.

It is not uncommon to find exchange students spending a semester or more in Japan. For those wondering if its universities are the right institutions to entrust their education, questions of cost, admissions requirements and the quality of academic and campus life will be key considerations...


What’s it going to cost?

High school education in Japan can be quite expensive, with tuition costs of around one million yen a year considered normal, so Japanese universities should be considered in this context. Indeed, undergraduate courses tend to hover around a similar annual figure.
