* Course and accommodation applications will be processed in the order they are received, so the earlier you apply, the better.


Special notes for accommodation

application fees

When students request more than one type of accommodation (i.e. one term homestay and one term at a weekly apartment), an additional application fee is required. If a student later chooses only one or the other, the other application fee will not be returned.

If we cannot fulfill a request for a certain form of accommodation, the student's fee will be used as the application fee for another form of accommodation.

If two people are staying in the same room, each person must fill out a separate application form, but the application fee must be paid once per room only.

Nonrefundable Application Fee
for Courses
Domestic residents ¥6,000

Nonrefundable Application Fee of Accommodations is the same way as Nonrefundable Application Fee of Courses.
