Support Systems for Inbound Students

University of East Asia assists inbound students for study and life as well as enrichment of education research of the university and contribution of regional internationalization.

VISA・Status of Residence

A Student Visa is required when your expected period of stay is more than three months. Inbound Students need to obtain a "Student Visa" at the nearest Japanese Embassy or Consulate General before entering Japan. A Certificate of Eligibility for Status of Residence (CESR) is required for your visa application. University of East Asia will apply for the CESR to the Japanese Immigration Bureau for all Inbound Students who are accepted into University of East Asia.

Residential Facilities

University of East Asia and other public organizations have a limited number of residential facilities for Inbound Students. The rent of rooms of these publicly managed facilities is inexpensive compared with those of private housing. The maximum duration of an overseas student's residence at these publicly owned facilities is one to two years. Some Inbound Students at University of East Asia live in private housing. To find and rent private housing, local real estate brokers are generally used. When you make a contract to rent private housing, in most cases you will be required to pay a "Shiki-kin" (deposit) and/or a "Reikin" (key money) to the lessor. Also, you must pay a brokerage fee to the real estate broker. The average rent in Shimonoseki is \20,000, although the rent and other terms of lease vary depending on the location, conditions of the property and other factors.

Notification of place of residence (address), (procedure at the local municipal office)

Those who have received a residence card at a port of entry are asked to visit the municipal office where you live with your residence card, and notify your address within 14 days of finding a place to settle down. This includes those in possession of a passport stating "A residence card will be issued late". In such a case, please be sure to bring your passport to your municipality's office and follow the necessary procedures. After you notify your address, your residence card will be sent to the address by the Immigration Bureau by registered mail.

National Health Insurance (procedures at the local municipal office)

All foreigners (including accompanying family members) who reside legally in Japan longer than three months are required to enroll in this program unless they are enrolled in some other social insurance program, such as that offered at their workplace. Once enrolled, subscribers will receive a health insurance card. When they receive treatment at any healthcare provider that accepts the National Health Insurance (NHI), they will only need to pay 30% of the expenses when presenting the insurance card at the reception desk before treatment. To become a NHI policyholder, go to the relevant division of your local municipal office.

Social Security and Tax Number ("My Number")

In Japan, an individual 12-digit social security and tax number (also called "My Number" or "individual number") is given to all residents, including nationals of other countries. Sometime after completion of resident registration at the municipal office of your address, you will be sent a card notifying you of your individual number. Please keep this notification card or individual number card (issued upon application) in a safe place, as your individual number is required in some situations, such as when completing important procedures at the municipal office. Please also note that this number is different from the 12-digit number written on your residence card. The following are the examples when your individual number is required: when completing procedures at the municipal office and when starting part-time work.

Part-time Jobs

Those who have a "Student (/ryugaku)"status are not permitted to work or be compensated in the form of payment. Only those who need to supplement school and living expenses will be able to obtain a work permit. With the new residence management system, permission to engage in an activity other than that permitted under the resident status is given at Narita, Haneda, Chubu, and Kansai Airports(where resident cards are issued), to persons with Student visa, who enter Japan for the first time. They are allowed to work part time under the following requirements.
1.The part-time job must not interfere with academic work.
2.Those who have "Student (/ryugaku)"status are permitted to work up to 28 hours per week and 8 hours a day only during a long vacation.
3.The part-time job must not affect public order and morals (e.g., sex-related industry employment is forbidden).

Scholarships

Tuition fees in Japan are not so high as those in the United States and the United Kingdom. In addition, Japan's scholarship programs and tuition exemption/waiver programs are more extensive than those in other countries. The 1st year's school expenses include admission fee, tuition fee, facility /equipment usage fee, among other things. Admission fee is payable for the 1st year only.
There are many financial assistance programs for international students, such as tuition fee exemption or waiver system and scholarship programs. However, you have to be aware of the following things.
■For many scholarship programs, you can send an application only after admission to your school. ■There are few scholarships that cover the entire cost of studying in Japan. ■It's generally not possible to pay for both school expenses and living expenses with just a part-time job. ■Please prepare your financial plan carefully before coming to Japan.

Cost of living

The average monthly expenses (excluding academic fees) of an international student are shown below. The cost of living in metropolitan areas is higher than in rural areas. University of East Asia is located in Shimonoseki, Chugoku area where living expenses are cheap.
