Foreign Student Support Systems
Support for Foreign Students
Sanko Gakuen has established support systems that allow foreign students to study with peace of mind at each of its campuses.
As the support systems available differ depending on the individual school and region, for more details check the application guidelines and school brochures, or contact a specific school to make direct inquiries.
School staff will apply for a student visa on the foreign student's behalf.
As staff authorized as proxy application agents for visa granting and renewal procedures are stationed at each school, we have systems in place so that students can easily consult with someone when they need help getting accustomed to student life or experience any kind of trouble in their everyday life.
Exemptions of up to 500,000 yen in tuition fees per year
