Relatively low tuition fees and a variety of scholarships
Tuition fees in Japan compare favourably to most other study abroad destinations, 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 ¥146,000 including tuition fees, which is less than £1,100 ($1,400)! Also, there is a wide range of scholarship opportunities available to international students, including full or partial tuition fee waivers or a monthly stipend. For instance, the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT)
has some fantastic scholarships at all levels that offer a generous monthly stipend.
