*1 Admitted students are required to submit 120,000 yen (100,000 for class tuition, 20,000 for admission fees) upon declaring their intent to enter the program. In the event that the student decides not to enter the program, this payment will not be refunded.
*2 The security deposit is used to pay for any liabilities the student incurs. Any unused funds will be returned to the student upon completion of the program.
Living expenses depend heavily on whether the student chooses to live in a university dormitory or in a private apartment. For more information on dormitory fees, please refer to the “University Dormitory” page. Students intending to search for private accommodations should be aware of the following issues.
First, renting an apartment in Japan is quite expensive. Monthly rent for a one-room apartment with a kitchen will cost approximately 40,000 to 60,000 yen. When you first rent an apartment, you will also need to pay a deposit of 2 to 3 month's rent as well as a security deposit of about one month's rent. Furthermore, with a very few exceptions, Japanese apartments are not furnished. (You are only renting the space. Items such as stove, oven, refrigerator, light bulbs, and curtains are not included.) Therefore, you also need the money to buy those items. Additionally, personal expenses such as transportation fees, school fees, and lunch costs can be expected to total around 300,000 yen over two semesters (9 months).
