Realistic Financial Planning

It is your responsibility to cover all your expenses for the duration of your study at the University of Tokyo. The School of Engineering encourages you to start looking for any applicable financial aid which might help you to have a stable academic life while you are at the University of Tokyo. You will, however, realize how difficult it is to synchronize the first period of scholarship awards and the enrolment period. In addition, application and/or registration for a scholarship do not guarantee that you will successfully receive any funding in the future. Simulate your expected income and spending by yourself in advance and make a realistic financial plan, which is also requested at the time of your visa application starting in July for candidates enrolling in September, and in January for candidates enrolling in April.
