Hello everyone!

I was looking at all the threads and didn't see one for this year's Japanese studies, so I started one. Was wondering if anybody else applied this year?

Isn't thread for this year?
that's the thread for research and graduate so for people applying to study master's in japan. i made this one specifically for the japanese study, which is a one year thing during undergrad.

Has anyone applied through the university recommendation? I'm having an interview with the university that I applied to soon, and was wondering if anyone here is having a similar experience.

yah! I just got a message from the consulate saying that I'm recommended to tokyo by canada this year!
Have you guys already heard something about being recommended to japan but after all the process not being chosen to the scholarship?

This thread seems pretty dead, but I'll just post anyway

I just got an email saying that I've been nominated by the university in Japan and that MEXT should be giving the final decision in June!
Not gonna lie I'm slightly worried will I even be able to enter the country in September if Japan still has the same restrictions as now...

Actually I got confused, the message I got in March was that I got recommended by my city's consulate lol. They told me I still have two screenings to go, one from the embassy and the final one from MEXT. This is so much waiting lol and i don't even know the timeline.

I heard that there might be a chance not being chosen if you only pass 1st screening but not 2nd one, people from the consulate told me if you pass the 2nd screening from the embassy then it's basically a go. At least in Canada

I feel you, it feels like it's been forever since I sent the applications and everything 😞

I also chose the language course!
It's kinda tiring when we have to wait for the call of the test and interview, and then the result of first screening. Now it's the result of second screening.

Besides, yeah, I'm happy to hear that we have the same course choice ^^ What are your university preferences?

I actually already got nominated for the scholarship (I didn't apply through embassy so my case is a bit different) and now I'm just waiting for the final result from MEXT. The uni I got nominated by is お茶の水女子大学!

But my friend who received this scholarship through the embassy track a few years ago got the final result in July, I wonder if it's going to take that long around this time too 🤔

So you were already nonimated by Ochanomizu uni? That's great! My teacher once told me that it's quite a good uni ^^

I was told that the final result would be in July. This time it would take that long, too.

But now the result of second screening still isn't out yet. According to the notification of latest years, it should be informed around late June.

Yes :) It does seem like a good uni, I really hope I can go there!

I guess all we can do is just to keep waiting then. But let's hope you'd get the results of the second screening as soon as possible!
