Estimated Personal Expenses

Participants in CJPN/ JLJSP are strongly urged to bring adequate funds to cover their personal expenses in Japan. Although personal expenses vary from individual to individual, approximately 80,000 to 100,000 yen per month (~833.76-1,042.60 USD), including accommodation charges, should be adequate.

Mandatory Health Insurance-National Health Insurance

National Health Insurance is administered by the city/town/village (local government) where one lives and all foreign nationals are required to enroll in this program. This insurance covers 70 percent of the total medical cost, which means that the patient pays only the remaining 30 percent at a hospital or at a dental practice.

Working in Nagoya

Students holding a college student visa are allowed by the Japanese Government to engage in a part-time job on the condition that the working hours should not exceed 28 hours a week as permitted by the Immigration Bureau.  However, students are not granted absences from classes because of part-time jobs.  Students should go to Japan with adequate financial support, which will enable them to pursue their studies without resorting to part-time jobs for financial survival.

Japanese Language and Japanese Studies (JLJSP)
The overall objective of the JLJSP lies in providing the students with high-quality Japanese language and cultural instruction, and thereby equipping them with the skills and motivation necessary in the pursuit of their academic goals. The main focus is on the mastery of the Japanese language.

Contemporary Japan Program in Nagoya (CJPN)
  • It has been observed that an increasing number of students from around the world become interested in Japan through contemporary cultural influences such as Japanese film and anime. This program has been developed to accommodate the demands of such students, and is offered to students who are interested in pursuing in-depth study of contemporary Japan. The CJPN is shaped by two unique concepts. The first is that the focus of the program extends beyond the overall aspects of contemporary Japan and explores the specific features of the Chubu Region, one of the most economically vibrant areas in Japan. In fact the headquarters of several world-famous companies are based in the region, including that of the Toyota Motor Corporation. In other words, this program encompasses a field of study that is unavailable elsewhere. The second is that many of the subjects offered in this program (including the Internship Program) are of a practical nature and have been designed to facilitate the students' career development.
  • Internship Program (elective)
    CJPN students will be offered an internship opportunity lasting for two to three weeks. UTSA students could qualify for the internship program. Under the Internship Program, possible placements include hotels, travel agencies, manufacturing companies, language schools, municipal offices, government affiliated associations, etc. Please note that we cannot guarantee a place for all applicants due to limited availability, qualifications of the applicants, etc., but will endeavor to ensure that as many students as possible will be accommodated. The Internship Program carries two credits.
