Although Japan is very close to China, its education system is not the same. Many students prefer to study in Japan for further study.
let’s take a look at the list of application materials for studying abroad of Japanese graduate students.
Let’s first look at the application materials
1. Letter of recommendation from a university professor
A letter of recommendation from a professor is required for a graduate student applying to a university or college in Japan.
but different schools apply for different requirements.
some universities require a professor to issue a letter of recommendation, while some universities require a dean or a dean to issue a letter of recommendation.
has no special requirements in terms of content, as long as its department is indicated, its usual learning performance can be satisfied.
2. Report card
For the students who are studying, all the scores from the first year of university to the time of application shall be issued. The scores of
cannot be in Chinese, and the original English or Japanese version must be submitted. The
report card is only one of the application materials, and the Japanese teachers mainly want to know what courses the students have learned during the period of school
3. Certificate of intended graduation
It is necessary for students to submit a pre-determined graduation certificate at the beginning of the senior year.
this certificate is issued by the Department of the student, generally including the applicant’s name, gender, date of birth, year of enrollment, major name, year of graduation and name of the degree to be obtained.
4. Summary of graduation thesis
In order to better grasp the performance of students in school, Japanese universities will require students to provide the outline of their graduation thesis or their thesis and research results during their college life.
5. Research plan
Among all the materials, the research plan is the most important document for studying abroad in Japan.
teachers usually understand students’ research ideas and actual level through the research plan.
research plan includes research background, research purpose, research content, research methods and references.
Each university has different requirements for the number of words. Dongda requires 5000 words at most, while Nagoya only requires 2000 words.
Next, let’s look at the application conditions
I. graduates of four-year or above have the qualification to apply for graduate school examination
It is required that undergraduate students have valid graduation certificate and degree certificate.
individual junior college students, self-taught students and students without degree certificate are less likely to directly apply for good national and public universities in Japan.
therefore, it is suggested that these students can apply through language schools.
Note: the general graduate school requires students to have bachelor’s degree, but some schools do not require it.
some students have double junior college degree, in this case, although the accumulated years of study have reached four years, they still do not have the qualification of Japanese graduate school
II. Japanese Level 2 or above
This is the lowest threshold.
for students majoring in Arts and Japanese, the Japanese level needs to reach level 1. Although theoretically, graduate students can not get language scores, but empirically, if there is no Japanese student, there is almost no success rate for students directly applying in China.
3. Before the formal application, you can study as a postgraduate for one year
It is worth noting that only graduates with a 4-year system or above are eligible for the status of advanced students. One of the qualifications for entry to the
Japanese graduate school is that they should have a degree of more than 16 years. It is noted that the number of advanced students as informal students will not be included in the number of academic years
4. Tutors are very important
The application of Japanese graduate students is tutorial system, that is to say, they are dealing with people, not with a school or a system, so there will be many uncertainties. Some students jokingly say that studying in Japan is like a blind date. It’s ok if you look good. It’s not unreasonable. Maybe you don’t have all of these conditions, but as long as you have two or three flash points, you have the same application The possibility of going to a famous school
V. qualified average score
At present, the requirement of average score in Japanese universities is not too high, but it is necessary to ensure that there are no failing subjects, and the Japanese are very heavy on the qualified points.
but some famous universities still need to ensure that the average score is more than 75 because of the problem of competition.
and the best is getting lower and lower.
had better have a higher trend.
Finally, let’s look at the application process
1. Contact the tutor
The reasonable time to contact the tutor is usually 6-12 months before the time you want to enroll (usually twice a year, April and October).
specific time each school has different majors.
must be contacted at least 6 months ago, otherwise it will be too late.
It’s recommended that Chinese undergraduate students prepare to contact their tutors after entering their senior year.
contact frequency, don’t worry, and be patient.
generally reply in a normal week.
write in a respectful manner, both Japanese and English are OK, and Japanese is the best choice for liberal arts.
Note: the writing of the research plan is not in the form of “です”, but in the form of “であ”, “とえ れる” and so on.
2. Get the fundraising essentials.
prepare the wish materials
While continuing to contact with the Tutor (in addition to expressing thanks and greetings to the tutor, or reporting your study), you can get the key points of graduate student recruitment in the University. The free materials can be obtained through the tutor or directly obtained from the office, noting that the key points of recruitment are all in Japanese After getting the key points of recruitment, the qualifications and materials needed for graduate students to make a wish are very clear.
Japan’s graduate period is one year, which can be extended once, for a total of two years.
extension also needs the consent of the tutor, which is generally agreed
3. Get the visa
The general admission qualification notice will be issued three months before the admission time.
will also send you the application form for the qualification certificate of retention, and then send it to the university after completion. The university will apply for the qualification certificate of retention for you.
application will take one to two months to stay.
will go to visa after getting the qualification certificate of retention
4. Pack up and go to Japan
Book a flight ticket after you get your visa, or when you can get it.
prepare your luggage.
