Some things you should be aware of...

Not all schools accept beginner level students for the October intake.

Some schools only accept students with JLPT N4-N3 proficiency for the October intake, while others do offer classes in the beginner levels.

Do take note that 【have studied Japanese for at least 150 hours or possess the proficiency level of JLPT N5 (min)】 is listed as one of the requirements by the Immigration of Japan for those who would like to apply for the long-term course (6 months – 2 years), even though you are joining the beginner level in Japan.

It costs approximately RM90,000 to study for 1 year in a Japanese language school in Tokyo.

Let us give you a rough/estimated breakdown,

  • School fees for 1 year JPY800,000 【RM30,400】
  • Cost of living for 1 year JPY1,440,000 【RM54,720】
    • Monthly Rental JPY60,000 【RM2,280】
    • Monthly Train Pass1 JPY10,000 【RM380】
    • Monthly Insurance  likely within JPY2,0002 【RM76】
    • Monthly Cost for Meals JPY45,0003 【RM1,710】
  • Miscellaneous like plane tickets, deposits, purchases when moving in, registration etc. 

1 If students from your school are allowed to apply for the commuter pass for students, you are able to get discounts up to 60% for your train passes.
2 Varies according to one’s age, the example for university student shown in the above.
3 Assuming JPY1,500 required daily for 30 days.

※ The calculation above is based on JPY100 = RM3.80.

You are allowed to work part-time up to 28 hours a week under the student visa (long-term course only), but you should not depend on that to survive in Japan.

Studying and working part-time may sound easy, especially when classes are only 3-4 hours a day.

But part-time jobs are a lot more serious in Japan when compared to Malaysia. Working 4-5 hours is actually very, very tiring. If it cause you to perform badly in class, the school has every right to stop you from working and may even expel you if matters become serious.

Also, most schools do not allow their students to work part-time for the first 3 months in Japan; some schools forbid their students working part-time entirely.

Are the schools allowed to do that? Yes, of course.
Because the school is the one applying your visa; in a way, the school has to answer to the immigration should you cause any trouble in Japan.

Being granted the student visa means focusing on your studies should be your utmost priority.
