Average Tuition

Tuition in Japan, like everywhere, depends on your program of choice and institution. Tuition at local or national universities can be around $10,000 per year, while at private universities, tuition starts at $15,000. Expect more from the medical and health sciences programs.

Average Cost of Living

Compared to other study destinations, the monthly living cost in Japan to cover your living expenses (such as accommodation, food, travel, etc.) is expensive, especially if you choose to reside in the capital, Tokyo. However, it all depends on where you live and the lifestyle you follow. Depending on where you reside, the cost can range from $800 to $1,100 per month, with Tokyo being the most costly city to live in. If you study in a smaller city with low accommodation and transport costs, you may be able to live on less, but in Tokyo, it is easy to spend considerably more, living in your apartment.

Most of your money will be spent on housing and lodging, and as usual, a university dormitory is the most cost-effective alternative. Despite the availability of university and government dorms, due to the scarcity of dorms, 75 percent of international students choose private housing. So, as soon as you receive your acceptance, begin looking for a dormitory.
