Student Cost of Living

According to a national average study, in Japan, international students can expect a budget of around 138,000 yen or a near $1,100 USD. This actually comes as a shock to most international students because they were expecting a higher amount more near $3,000 USD.

Also, students can ask the university they are attending to help look for part-time work. Most of the time students studying in Japan can receive a part-time job within the university itself. If not, there are many part-time opportunities available for students around the country.

The region with the highest month to month living expense is Kanto with a near $1,300 USD. While the lowest or cheapest month to month living is Shikoku region with $820 USD.

Some of this cost can be reduced when students apply for scholarships from Japanese universities. As a matter of fact, Japanese art universities provide monthly allowance scholarships to help students pay for necessities each month.

Cost of Tuition

Funny enough, Japan has some of the lower tuition rates which is a huge benefit to students. Why? Not only does a cheap tuition mean better savings, but Japan is known for having cheaper tuition but with top grade education institutions. Japan takes higher education seriously; they want their own students to come out on top as the best academically. So international students will know for sure that they will receive a top education, no matter what.

Average public tuition fees per academic year is only $6,500 USD. And Master’s to Postgraduate only gradually increases to around $8,000 USD.

Languages Spoken in Japan

Standard Japanese is the most common language spoken in Japan. However, the many languages that grace this country include Ainu, Amami-Ōshima, Kunigami, Miyako, Okinawan, Yaeyama, Yonaguni, Bonin English, Evenki, Japanglish (Japanese-English), Matagi, Nivkh, Orok, Sanka, Zainichi Korean, Chinese, Korean, and Mongolian.

Students will do far better if they have a keen interest in Japanese culture and wish to understand more of the language. This will actually help international students receive better Japanese scholarships if they wish to attend a Japanese university.
