Extended reading: an introduction to the skills of applying for scholarships in Japanese Universities
1. Pay attention to the research achievements of the recommender
Some international students will think that the bigger the title or position of the person who writes the recommendation letter, the better. In fact, this is not the case.
Japanese schools usually don’t look at the title or position, but care about their research achievements and academic status.
if a teacher who has made achievements in a certain field acts as a recommender, the chances of obtaining a scholarship will greatly increase.
2. Actively keep in touch with the school
Be proactive! Be proactive! Be proactive! Say important things three times~
A lot of students are embarrassed to ask for the result after sending out the materials.
but in fact, because a large number of people apply every year, the school generally does not take the initiative to contact the applicant.
if you just wait for the result after sending out your application materials, you may miss the opportunity just because of the lack of some documents So we must take the initiative to keep in touch with the school!
3. Actively contact with the Minister of Education
In Japan, universities generally think that only the ministers or other full-time personnel of each department can objectively review and assess the academic achievements and potential of the applicants, so that they are most qualified to explain who should be supported by the scholarship; it is very helpful to keep in touch with the ministers of the applied departments and show their academic ability to apply for the scholarship
