Process Flow

     Step 1. Contact form

Send the form to Pathway Japan from the Contact.

     Step 2. Consultation

Do tell us about your interest in Japan, courses of interest, places you would like to live, and when you would like to start, and so on.

A face to face consultation is the best way to get to know your plan to study in Japan. Either in person or via online, face to face consultation is possible wherever you are. If you prefer emails, that’s fine too.

After the hearing, you will receive information on various courses, schools and accommodations. Pathway Japan will also advise you about the visa.

     Step 3. Planning

If you are happy to proceed, select one course and school in which you wish to study. Also, select one accommodation type which suits your lifestyle.

Studying abroad is a big decision. Setting your goal is a very important step. A good plan leads you to achieve that goal. Pathway Japan can tailor a study plan explaining the steps to achieve your desired Japanese level.

Obtaining a student visa takes approximately six months. Therefore, a time frame must be considered when planning so that you will not miss your first day of the course!

Living  cost in Japan is also an important factor in studying abroad. Pathway Japan can prepare an annual budget including tuition fees, accommodation rent and living expenses. This will allow you to prepare for a long-term study in Japan. 

     Step 4. Application

Pathway Japan will prepare the school application form using the information you provided. The application form has a number of pages, and each must be accurately filled in.

For those require student visa, additional information and specific documents are required. Pathway Japan will ensure that the forms and documents are all complete and in order for submission. Note that there are cases where contents require Japanese translations depending on the school requirements.

Pathway Japan will handle complicated processes. So you can sit back and relax.

     Step 5. Enrolment

Once you are accepted into the course, the school will ask you to take a Japanese test. This is to see your Japanese level so that the school can allocate you to an appropriate class. Pathway Japan can arrange the test for you to sit in your own comfortable environment of your home or work.

For beginners, it is perfectly fine not to answer any of the questions. However, when you start the course in Japan, you will see that the textbooks are written in Hiragana and Katakana. Therefore, all students must be able to read both before starting the course.

Pathway Japan can help you learn hiragana and katakana with clear pronunciation in just 3 online lessons!

     Step 6. Pre-departure

You now have a student visa and ready to go!

Pathway Japan can tell you all there is to know about living in Japan. The seminar is about arrival, way to your accommodation and room key pickup, shops and restaurants, and more. In addition, the culture, places to visit, what to expect in living, and so on.
