Admission Process for Japanese School

Step 1. JLRC Assessment Form

Applicants must fill out JLRC’s Assessment Form (the Assessment Form is in the program details which can be taken from the “Receive Program Details” button below). This will serve as the initial screening process to determine whether the applicant is qualified for the program or not. Applicant’s goals and reasons for studying Japanese language will also be checked.

Step 2. Contract Signing

If the applicant is qualified, he/ she will receive the draft of the Nihongo study program consultancy contract. The applicant must read, review, and fully understand the terms and conditions stated in the contract. Online clarification meeting will be conducted between the applicant and the JLRC Program Specialist prior to the contract signing.

Step 3. Application Fee Payment

The applicant will send payment to JLRC for the application fee of the Nihongo study program within 3 days after contract signing. This application fee is non-refundable.

Step 4. Meeting with Partner Japanese Language School

JLRC will arrange a special online meeting / assessment interview among the applicant, the JLRC Program Specialist, and the partner Nihongo school’s representative. The applicant may also directly ask or clarify with the Nihongo school’s representative regarding the details on the school and/or its Japanese Language study program.

Step 5. Japanese Language Study

If the applicant has neither a background knowledge in Japanese language nor a JLPT N5 certificate holder, JLRC Online Japanese course (JLPT N5 course) will be offered since the applicant must finish at least 150 hours of Japanese language study or have the JLPT N5 certificate.

Step 6. Documents Preparation

All of the required documents will be prepared by the applicant upon consultation with the JLRC Program Specialist. Once completed, all requirements will be checked by the Specialist for confirmation. If there are any needed revisions or additional documents, the Specialist will coordinate with the applicant. Upon the approval of the Specialist, the checked original documents will be sent to the partner Japanese language school.

Step 7. “Certificate of Eligibility” Application to Japan Immigration

The applicant’s documents will be submitted to Japan Immigration for the approval of the “Certificate of Eligibility” (COE).

Step 8. “Certificate of Eligibility” Results from Japan Immigration

The Japan Immigration will either approve or deny the application for COE. Usually, it will take around 2-3 months before the result is released.

Step 9. Processing Fee Payment

If the applicant is successfully granted a COE by Japan Immigration, the applicant will pay the processing fee to JLRC as stated in the Nihongo study program consultancy contract.

Step 10. School Fees Payment

Also upon granting of the COE, the applicant must settle the school fees (including tuition fee, accommodation fee and other miscellaneous fees). The amount depends on the partner Japanese language school that the applicant chose and its program length/ period.

Step 11. Visa Application and Ticket Booking

After a successful student visa application with the Embassy of Japan in the respective country, the applicant will book the air ticket accordingly.

Step 12. Departure
