    Is Japan good for foreigners to study , I mean any type of bias or they favor only a particular race, I read something like this online , As I want to do research in 'nanotechnology' in Japan.

  16. Livia says:

    Oh god I don't know how to feel after this. I applied for the MEXT scholarship this year and I take the exams this Wednesday in Australia, I have to take a 1 hour English exam, 2 hour Japanese exam and a 1 hour mathematics exam, and I'm FREAKING OUT because the maths exam is WAY above what I've been learning in school and even though I've been officially learning Beginner's Japanese since last year, MY JAPANESE IS STILL SO HORRIBLE and I'm terrified that I'm not going to get accepted because of my terrible maths and Japanese skills ;__: (I applied to study a bachelors of primary education)

  17. S B says:

    What if you're just wanting to go to a Japanese university without the scholarship? I have a decent level of Japanese already and since tuition is cheaper (even with housing) in Japan, it's really not an issue. I am guessing you would just apply directly to that school?

    Hello! I have a very important question because my case is a little different. So I dropped out of high school my senior year but completed the rest of my high school education through a GED or in my case, a HiSET diploma which looks the same as a high school diploma. Would Japanese colleges still accept me if my resume looks good, I've done a lot of volunteer work etc and got a high score on my HiSET test? Same question applies for the MEXT scholarship..

  68. Arif Joy says:

    can I study undergraduate CSC in English version ??

  69. Krutika Momaya says:

    Is it initially one year scholarship for research student? And then extended on the basis of your academics?

  70. helder simoes says:

    konnichiwa Kem chan, I really love the fact that you start your videos with a full japanese prologue, makes me love them more, because I love the language that is. so I am basically rewatching this video, since I last did in 2017 when I made my first attempt to apply for a scholarship for undergrad programs, but failed for poor language proficiency by then. I was really shocked, because I always heard that there were all-english programs but the embassy (of my home country, Angola) told me after an awekward phone call interview that I had to be really really fluent in japanese. So I had no choice but to enroll in a local institution.

    But I wont give up just yet, japan is a childhood dream for me, I will apply for a postgraduate program once I am done in 2 years, hopefully I master my nihongo by then <3. Thanks for keeping me motivated.

  71. Arekun says:

    I got the mext scholarship for "specialized training college" and lived 3 years in Japan, then I went back home to go to uni but now I kinda wanna apply to mext again for my masters xD but it's weird for masters, you have to contact professors? so confusing lol, I guess I need to do more research about graduate studies in general xP

  72. Rizu Chan says:

    I am 18 years old. I am currently a highschool senior and I am aiming for the MEXT scholarship undergraduate. I have been studying Japanese for about 6 years. I took the JLPT and passed the N4. I won speech competitions in Japanese for 2 consecutive years, 1st place in the highschool division in my Junior year, and 2nd place in college level 5. I never took AP classes and my SAT score is 1260 and my GPA is a 4.0 weighted and 3.6 unweighted. I'm in 5 different clubs, I lead one of them. Do I have any chances of getting the scholarship? I wanna go to Japan for 5 full years and maybe 6 or 7, I want to get my masters degree. I'm scared to death.

  73. Alex Narzery says:

    Even i want to study in Japan but don't know to get scholarship😊😊😊

  74. H a r u says:

  76. S. ROHIT NAIDU says:

  77. S. ROHIT NAIDU says:

    And yes what in the case of uTokyo?
    Means you're saying that first we have to give an exam and a interview for mext and then for the university where we want to get our btech or mtech…
    Like uTokyo do they have any type of entrance exams???

  78. S. ROHIT NAIDU says:

    And by the way thanks for replying.
    I am rohit..

  79. Nais Sketching says:

  81. Yoshi Ekurens says:

    Can I apply for a scholarship if I'm trying to get into a school in Japan seeing that I'm not going to school

  82. 승인호 says:

    I know this is like an old video but I just really want to thank you, I've been having doubts lately whether or not I should go to uni in Japan. I was afraid that it was too far fetched or just simply impossible, but you really cleared up a lot of things and answered a ton of questions I didn't even know I had! I'll work very hard from now on, and improve my grades & Japanese language skills!

    I want to apply for undergraduate and would like to take a course related to medicine like medtech or nursing. Is it okay for me to apply? Because I researched a bit and found out that MEXT is offered to students who wish to take certain fields. Plus I want to be a doctor so idk if MEXT will grant students who wish to take up medicine.

    i have an engineering bachelor degree. Am i eligible for MBA or Do i have to do M.S. because i am wondering for which proposal i should prepare ? please help me out here. Love you

  94. Pablo Hernandez says:

    Is every research student evaluated the same way? I entered the MEXT website, and I just want to confirm this, they had past exam questions only for english and Japanese. So, are does the only topics they test you in for research students or are there any other topics like math, physics..etc?

  95. Evy van Hoof says:

    Hey! My name is Evy and I'm from the Netherlands and I'm currently debating whether to apply for the MEXT or not. I'm currently in high school and I'm doubting between the Undergraduate scholarship or the Japanese Studies one. I still have a lot of questions but I'm planning on visiting the Japanese Ambassade in my country upcoming monday. Would it hurt my application if I would ask them a lot of more basic questions and spoke out my uncertaincies about applying to which scholarship?

  96. Titan Hyperion says:

    People saying mext is difficult and process is vigorous boys and girls have you ever heard about IIT 😂😂😂🤣

  97. Tripti Sharma says:

    Thank you so much ! This information is highly useful , I was actually looking for scholarships in japan for higher education and had lots of questions, you answered most of them . Need to work hard on Japanese now.

  98. しゃしゃしゃちゃん says:

    Mext isn’t the greatest if u come from a small country like me . When I applied to it I already had N2 and got selected for the interview then I passed the interview too and in the final round (3rd round ) they told me I failed lol I got the highest points in my country yet I couldn’t get it cuz apparently if ur from a small country they might not want u . I just applied for it this year too and I passed the tests and the interview too (now i have N1) but I still can’t relieve cuz maybe they still don’t want me so it’s really sad and unfair that English isn’t my first language…

  99. Alexis Ramos says:

    Girl, would you please do some simple Japanese lessons?!

  100. め きと き says:
