I am a Canadian student interested in attending a Japanese university for socio-cultural anthropology. I need information on how university admissions in the Japan work. Thanks. BTW, you’ve got a great site.


I share kd’s worrry abut the language. I may be wrong, but it will be nice to hear from some international students who hv enrolled in these Japanese univs, to see is there is language support. Having a hard time googling and locating discusion forums


Japanese will be a tough language to learn… I dont think many programmes there are in english..
