Working-holiday visa course
If you are planning to come to Japan to travel, work and study under a working holiday visa, we can help you start your adventure!
The minimum amount of time you need to study with us to benefit from our support is 2 weeks!
However, to set yourself up for success, we do recommend studying for bit longer. You can look at it this way: 2 weeks will introduce you to the language and will allow you to cover some basics. But a longer course can enable you to acquire the language skills that will help you in your travels, interactions with the locals, part-time employment and whatever you might want to do while in Japan. It is like giving yourself permission to stop holding the bulky phrasebook when travelling around Japan!
For that we have a special 3-month course at ¥350,000 only for you! And with registration and material fees included it comes at a 16% discount! Studying can be addictive, so if you want, extend the course by another three months for only ¥240,000.
The offer consists of 12 weeks of our Standard Course.
If you are not sure and would rather try the course for a shorter period, do not worry! You can cover the difference in pricing once you decide on the extension. What are you waiting for? :)
Looking for a shorter-term course instead? Try these options!
Enroll with us and get a 16% discount on your course if you study 3 months with us.
Working holiday visa
The working holiday visa is a one-year visa designed to give young people the chance to experience life in Japan. It gives them the right to work almost any job, as long as the job itself is not seen as the main purpose of their stay. The visa is only open to people up to 30 years old (or 35 in some countries), and you have to be able to show proof of minimum funds - usually about $2000 USD - as well as the money to buy a plane ticket back to your home country.
While it's definitely more work than receiving an automatic 3-month visa waiver, the Working Holiday visa has the advantage of giving you more economic freedom during your stay in Japan, so we would definitely recommend it for students from eligible countries. We also recommend the working holiday visa over the student visa for long-term study, for the following reasons:
- You can apply any time, whereas you have to apply for the student visa at least 5 months in advance.
- You can do whatever you want on the working holiday visa, whereas on the student visa, you have to study full-time (at least 20 lessons per week) for the duration of the visa.
- You can attend class when you want on the working holiday visa. On the student visa, if you don't attend 80% of classes or more, the visa may be cancelled.
- The application for a student visa is quite hard, takes some time, and requires additional documents, whereas the application for a working holiday visa is very easy and quick.
If you need more information, ask the Japanese Embassy in your country, as application procedures vary by country.Read more
