I only have two questions. 1) which JLPT level in Japanese do you need to safely pass the language test? 2) can I apply for MEXT while applying for a regular exchange program? Where I live I can file an application to a Japanese uni and if everything goes well I go in for one year in September 2019. Can I still apply for MEXT next spring and can I still get the benefits even though I'm already in Japan when they reply in 2020? I hope I didn't make it too confusing.

Reply Nick Stoker-Mota says: October 17, 2018 at 2:08 pm Hi Kemushi! I am a recent subscriber to your channel and found this video. But I have a question….You see, I'm 23 and got a B.A in Japanese studies (but my college didn't go over a whole lot and was more of an East Asia Studies thing…). After watching this video, I tried to navigate the info but I'm not sure if I qualify for this scholarship. Is it possible for me to apply as a research student with my research being on Youkai/folklore or Literature Translation (more interested in this honestly)? If not do you have any suggestion for me? Thanks!

Reply Master Pej says: November 9, 2018 at 6:39 pm Does the Mext#3 apply to people who already have college degrees but want to study a new course like arts/design? Or should I be a “research student” and just study Japanese and art further if I get approved? Searching for art scholarships I can apply for. Love your videos btw! Your Japanese is so good!

Actually, I am from Madagascar and I applied for the scholarship 3 times but couldn't get it yet 🙁 . So I would like to apply again next year. Watching your videos about the scholarship, I am curious about something. Actually, you have a bachelor in Linguistic and digital communication. And you studied MBA in Japan under MEXT. So my question is, is it possible to apply for another major apart from your initial major under the MEXT program? What are the conditions about it? The fact is I have been graduated from Film and Medias and I am working as a communication officer. I would like to study MBA in Japan too, so is it possible? Does the university application depend on the precedent work too? Thank you very much 🙂 Reply Karl says: December 31, 2018 at 10:39 am I applied for the MEXT scholarship about 20 years ago. It was also for studying in graduate school. My intention was to do as you are doing and turn it into a chance to get a master's degree. I had already passed JLPT1, and I'd say the Japanese part wasn't that hard. I ended up getting turned down, and I think the reason was that they felt that my background wasn't "special" enough. In other words, I was proposing to research Japanese organizational management (i.e. HR related stuff). My undergrad degree was in math, along with a handful of business and economics courses, but I assumed that the reason I got turned down was that my background didn't meet their standards.My question is, how did your background match up with the research proposal you wrote about in your application?Second, MEXT scholarship recipients used to get a stipend in addition to free tuiton. I think it used to be 150,000 yen/month (about $1300 or so). Do MEXT scholarship students still get that? (if you feel comfortable talking about it) Reply light lawliet says: January 8, 2019 at 4:00 pm i was enrolled in a local uni for a short period then dropped out. if i want to apply for this scholarship should i go for option 2/3?? and yes i'd rather re-start college then trying to go as exchange student but the problem is i completed high school in 2013. so do i even have any chance???

I'm a high school student from India. I wanted to know that is there a requirement that even if you're getting into MEXT, you have to show that you have enough money to support your own education? Please reply Reply Lamees Aljadie says: January 23, 2019 at 6:16 pm Hi, Thanks for the video. May I ask for some tips on how to find a good idea for a research proposal and how to write a research proposal?Thanks again Reply Krutika Momaya says: January 29, 2019 at 9:55 am I have completed my engineering.. And I want to apply for next scholarship as a research student. Can I apply as a research student and is it necessary to conduct a research before Landing to Japan????

Because long story short or I'll try to make it short, I have been wanting to do my masters to continue studying communication sciences and information sciences and technology but as a masters degree. I did my bachelor's at Penn State University and I did all 4 years in 2 and I graduated with a 3.51 GPA. I'm very proud of my accomplishment because I usually get told that's impossible. During one of my classes, I had to make up a resume as if I were someone way older and I wrote masters from Japan. My teacher at the time said it's funny I chose this, because more often than not, students who wrote their ideal resume went to accomplish them. Funny thing is, I soon found masters programs literally up my alleyway in Japan. I barely find them here. I let it play on my mind for the last year now thinking about it as a possibility. But now I definitely want to do it. I want to study Japanese to proficiently get better at it again because I've fallen behind. But I really want to study my masters in Japan. I will be reaching out to the consulate in New York also (I am in Philadelphia!! Hii!) I am deathly terrified. But I hope somehow someway I still get the chance to come over and do my masters. It's one of the things I cannot give up on. I travel to Japan every so often. But it's never enough for me. I really want to experience living and studying in Japan.
