Education System

Japan’s education system played a central part in a Japan’s recovery and rapid economic growth in the decades following the end of World War II. The schooling years in the Japanese education system are segmented along the lines of 6-3-3-4: 6 years of primary or elementary school; 3 years of middle or junior high school; 3 years of high school; and 4 years of university. However, the compulsory education covers elementary school and junior High school.

Beyond Academics, students are also encouraged to maintain cooperative relationships with their peers; to follow the set school routines; and to value punctuality. Classroom management emphasizes student responsibility and stewardship through emphasis on daily chores such as cleaning of desks and scrubbing of classroom floors. Students are encouraged to develop strong loyalties to their social groups, e.g. to their class, their sports-day teams, their after-school circles, e.g. baseball and soccer teams. Leadership as well as subordinate roles, as well as group organization skills are learnt through assigned roles for lunchtime, class monitor or class chairperson and other such duties.

Live, Study & Work

Living Expenses
You will need from ¥50,000 to ¥80,000 a month as living expenses in Tokyo. For your reference, an apartment will cost from ¥20,000 to ¥35,000 a month. However, you will need the deposit (security money equivalent to the apartment fee for one to three months) and the commission (the amount equivalent to the apartment fee for the month) to be paid to the real estate agent. You can find an inexpensive apartment through the introduction of real estate agents, the information from our students and our Institute. Please feel free to ask our advice about this matter.

Part-Time Job
Any international students studying in Japan can work no more than 28 hours a week if it is not an obstacle to their studies, provided that you are permitted to work by our Academy. Students must also obtain a letter of authorization to work from the Immigration Bureau.

However, there are some fields of employment in which you are not allowed to be employed in, so ask your school before you start working. You will be forced to leave Japan as an illegal worker if you violate this law.
