    Academic Fees

    Academic fees in Japan are not as high as those in the United States and the United Kingdom. The admission and tuition fees, etc. for the first year in an undergraduate program in Japan total around ¥820,000 (US$7,200)* at a national university, ¥930,000 (US$8,200) at a local public university, and ¥1,100,000 (US$9,700) to ¥1,640,000 (US$14,400) at a private university (excluding medical, dental and pharmaceutical schools).
    In addition, Japan’s scholarship programs and tuition exemption/reduction programs are more extensive than those in other countries.
    The first academic year’s school expenses include the admission fee, tuition fee, facility/equipment usage fee, among other things. Please note that admission fee is payable for the first year only.
    * This does not apply for some national universities.
