Scholarship system for reduction or exemption of tuition fees

To promote greater international collaboration, Tokyo University of Science has implemented tuition exemption which is called “Partial tuition-waiver scholarships for privately financed international students” to reduce the economic strain on international students who wish to study on their own expense and who have achieved outstanding academic results. Although the number of recipients can be limited and there is no full guarantee that you will be granted a full ride of tuition exemption, it is worth considering this as an option pursuing an education in Tokyo University of Science.

To be eligible for the waiver, you should first consider to apply and be formally enrolled to one of their desirable programs, such as the international student exchange program to each department. The next step would be acquiring your Student visa status. There are a few restrictions to the programs that you should be aware of:

  • Students who are in a doctoral course are not eligible. (They should apply for a tuition fee reduction via a different scholarship system for all doctoral students by TUS)
  • Students already receiving tuition fees assistance through the following organizations are not eligible.
    1. (a) The Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology (MEXT)
    2. (b) another government
    3. (c) an employer
    4. (d) a scholarship foundation
  • Students currently repeating a year of study and students in their final year of study who will not be able to graduate are not eligible.
  • Students who have taken a leave of absence from school are not eligible.

Even though you do not meet all of the above conditions, you should be able to carry on with your waiver application.

The benefit under the “Partial tuition-waiver scholarships for privately financed international students”

For first-year undergraduate and first-year master’s students, 30% of the tuition fee each year will be deduced from your bills. You shall continue to apply the following year as current students, or second year and above, where 50% of the tuition fee each year will be deduced. The application for the second year and above does not guarantee approval, and it very much depends on the student’s academic record and financial situations.

Housing in Japan make easy with student compensation

International Student Housing Compensation

In case that you would like to occupy a private apartment for your period of study, but cannot find a cosignatory, TUS will become your guarantor in the name of your department’s director. In order to do so, you would need to subscribe to the International Student Housing Compensation offered by Japan Educational Exchanges and Services(JEES). The subscription fee is 4,000 yen for one year or 8,000 yen for two years. Since you will receive assistance from the school, the actual amount you will have to pay out of your pocket will be 2,000 yen for 1 year and 4,000 yen for two years. If you cannot find a guarantor or cosignatory, the Student Support Section or the Student Services Section will help you to proceed with the task.

Years after years, schools in Japan are becoming more enthusiastic about welcoming international students to join the academy. Being in Japan as an international student has never been easier since there are a lot of opportunities offered to you by these higher educational institutions. Why wait longer to enroll?
