The Living Costs are another investment in addition to the school Fees. These expenses include food, transportation, and accommodation. Costs are affected by where you live.

There is a good supply of power and transportation services, and the food is very cheap here.

Visa success rate for Japan

In a survey conducted by the Japanese Language School Association in Tokyo, it was found that only 15% of Myanmar applicants received student visas, down from 76 percent last year, and only 21% of Bangladeshi applicants got student visas, down from 61%. Meanwhile, 29% of Nepalese students got visas for education compared to 17% the previous year.


Nepali students find Japan a desirable destination due to two main factors: Quality Education and Reasonable Cost of Living. Japan is different from countries such as the United States and Australia, where you need a large amount of money in your bank account to go to a decent school. Prices of those schools are also not as high as they are in other countries.

Scholarships and grants are also available if you want to reduce the cost of your education. Part-time employment can also help you reduce the burden of financial responsibilities.
