Our Experiences Going to Japanese University


hi guys look who it is Greg’s here it’s been like three years since you’ve been in my videos I’m like a couple years since I’ve seen am you just moved back to Japan if you don’t know who Greg is let me do a quick flashback [Music] so great guys move back here and we decided to do another video talking about our university experiences because we’ve both been out of university for a while now and it gave us some time to reflect on things and think about it a little more so I figured we’d do an updated version so I asked you guys for your questions on Twitter and hopefully we can answer them and give you guys some tips and advice if you’re thinking about coming to Japan for university did you guys have a difficult time in uni with a language barrier how was your experience for me it wasn’t too bad I mean like in all countries you usually use a language that you’re trying to learn in the classroom so like here which is all Japanese so even like I’m at basic levels they try to you kind of basic Japanese but everything like easy you have like any like questions anything that’s going to be in Japanese too so it’s just kind of get you a peasant’s of language but I mean they do that in America too so like if you’re like a Spanish speaker it’s only English in a classroom so kind of the same so you get used to it over time yeah like it’s kind of nice even if you have a language barrier to start with because they force you into using Japanese you don’t really have a choice you really do pick it up quite quickly yeah I had quite a solid level of Japanese before I entered University so I didn’t really have many problems but I did have some troubles with the classes that were like science or psychology that kind of stuff was a little difficult for me in Japanese but again I heard the vocabulary everyday the same types of terms and eventually I just got used to it so it really wasn’t an issue for either of us I think I have jlpt thank you but is it enough to go to uni there as a normal student and not as an exchange student I believe for our university you need an EQ to be accepted as a degree student yeah yeah I say I’m pretty sure it would be similar for other universities as well the gap between sang-kyu and me Q is quite big so I think you do need those extra yeah vocabulary to get through your classes in university so I would recommend studying for an EQ how is the difficulty level of Japanese courses compared to the Canadian or American courses well for our university it was really easy you feel that way – yes sometimes like honestly I felt like I was back in McCallum entry school at times it was weird but I’ve talked to other people that have been to both University in like North America and Japan and they said that Japan is known for being very difficult to enter University and to get accepted into the one that you want to be in but then the classes themselves and graduating is rather easy so that was definitely my experience yeah you thought the same classes in Japan are very lenient actually so yeah actually very easy to kind of pass your classes yeah I feel like the teachers were too nice to students yes not such a good thing but I mean it could probably vary from university uniready here it does yeah like I’m sure there are strict universities in Japan maybe like Los Zetas and you know why are level universities probably are not as lenient so yeah I would expect a little more from them but I feel like University in Canada is rather difficult the professors are really strict and if you skip a class you’re oh there’s some professors that are super strict like that and they wouldn’t accept you falling asleep in class or showing up late whereas in Japan you could just not show up for house the tournament it was pretty bad but that’s pretty true what was the face like when you guys went to uni was cafeteria food actually decent or was the conbini the choice of students well except for me I always brought a bento to school I usually made my own lunch and I would always bring it to school yeah Craig was known for that I had his bento his curry bento I like cooking so I pretty much always brought food it was kind of the same thing a lot of times I wouldn’t mix and match there getting vegetables every once in a while but pretty much I don’t know I enjoy cooking more than buying food but I think a few times I got um some of the cafeteria food we actually have a lot of food at our cafeterias a lot of choices we had like noodles ramen noodles soba there was a little bakery that smoked some breads hot dogs that kind of thing different bread like the hotdog and a bread the bean paste in a bread things in bread yeah what else do we have we had like curry like a joke good dishes was like some kind of meat and then rice and then salad there was really a big selection and the food was decent I did eat at the cafeteria sometimes I really did like going to the conbini and getting rice balls and stuff like that as well so I think it was a balance of folks they were both good our part-time jobs doable for students I had a part-time job I taught English part-time did you do any work call yours um well at the beginning I didn’t do any work at all but towards the end I started um teaching – it is legal to work part-time on a student visa you just have to apply for permission to do it you won’t have the permission right away I believe when you get your visa so you need to send in those forms and I think all the time they will accept it yeah I don’t think I’ve ever heard of anyone getting tonight and then you’ll be allowed to work what was it 28 hours a week so that’s a good chunk of time that they allow you to work you can make a decent amount of money working part-time but it may be a little different from the university because sometimes they’ll tell you like even though it says you can do 28 they only allow you to do 20 right your university might have rules but limit the amount hours they want to work because our university was strict with some student it was according yeah they wanted them to focus more in their studies than on work so it depends on the universities but legally you are allowed to work as a student if you apply for permission was it weird being a foreigner did you get along with everybody I wouldn’t say weird we did kind of stand out yeah our school had lots of Asian foreigners lots of Chinese and Korean students yes and not as many students from America and Europe so we did kind of stand out among the foreigner group I wouldn’t call it weird people didn’t like talking to us because we were the foreigners and they wanted to practice English or get to know us I enjoyed my experience yeah YouTube did the professor give you any special treatment or was it the same with everyone in one of my courses they did give me special treatment it was a course learning about AMA the Japanese flight company and learning how to be a stewardess and all the like ins and outs of the flight industry and the exam was so hard it was so hard and I got to the last question and it was an essay and it had to be hand written in Japanese and I was so slow at writing so I couldn’t finish it before the time when it was up so I brought it up teacher knows like I’m so sorry I write really slow in Japanese and he’s like always okay you did really well in class I know you understand the materials so I’ll give you a decent mark regardless whereas like a Japanese person wouldn’t get that so in some cases we did get I got special treatment yeah well I mean I didn’t but I know like based off of like learning kanji kanji is kind of hard especially when you’re in different classes that are all full Japanese vase mm-hmm I mean it’s hard for us to like well I mean some people that depending on how much time you actually study if you say a lot of times if you practice the right instruction all that then you get faster but if you don’t it’s kind of hard for us to just know know the kanji and like do it at the same time for like essays and so great and under a time limit so yeah they were a little vini at with us which was helpful it’s not like we used it and took advantage of that we tried our best but when it was impossible they were really nice about it so it was nice that’s a nice thing mm-hmm what were you guys like in university versus how you are now am i any different no so very nice person actually like we’re not exactly the same I you know like my first like real friends here yeah probably I think so yeah Greg was always one of my best friends here what were the professor is like in you they were nice I had a few that were very nice um that would like try to crack justice though but he that depends if if they studied in like America then they probably know how to kind of crack some jokes mom that made it like fun yeah but if they didn’t study Benny punching them was just really whatever yeah I kind of felt like the professors were divided between like kind of I want to see like foreign style and peeping where they’re like having fun and they’re really relaxed and then like hardcore Japanese lecture-style would literally just stand in front of the class and lecture you nothing else you just sit there and listen to them talk you’re the balance of the two yeah which was it was kind of cool I got to see both sides I definitely learned more Japanese in the lecture classes but I really liked almost assented you remember we have this one a really cool teacher he was lots of fun we came to the University today to visit our teacher so you guys can meet our favorite teacher almost Oh sensei was I a good student yeah oh she’s so excuse me how can I apply to transfer my second year of college what are the steps to take to apply for a uni from America well for majority of people what you would have to do is you would try to come here so you would try to like study abroad here for at least one year and then you get in you probably try to figure out if you want to actually be here and I guys bring it up do then yeah and then from that then you would talk to your university about doing the form and then you would take care of the forms and you know use in that back home and then they try to fill that out that you get transferred in lots of form but I guess if you’re in university in your home right now and you don’t know where to start go to your international office is usually an international office that deals with exchange students and students that want to go on exchanges so find that office and just pop in there and ask them what programs they have for Japan and see if they have anything to offer you my school never talked to us about opportunity to exchanges so I was never aware of them I just went in there was like hey I want to go to Japan you guys help me out is there anything and they set me up with everything it was lots of paperwork and lots of visa stuff and must have not fun you know stuff like that but it was doable so yeah just go into your office and ask for their advice mine’s a little different they would actually like and if you were in the language club they would always come in like the our international team here would have people come in that studied abroad oh yeah they’ll talk to you I wish mine didn’t so like if he I was in Japanese class at the time – no they would send in – my dad’s been to Japan before and then it was post about how they lived there for one year or how they lived it for six months and how it was for them and and obviously they loved it because they wouldn’t go outside the class the Romania buddies they made it and then they would try to basically get us to go in and find us to go abroad so for in Spanish class or anything like that they did the same thing but somebody that went to Spain or Mexico Sonia oh so cool they didn’t do that so I had no idea that those programs even existed all right I think that’s about it for now if you guys had any more questions leave them in the comments and we might be able to do a part two if there’s enough questions or I can quickly answer them in the comments and Greg’s gonna start up his channel again going like hands down below go cheer him on subscribe to him and I hope to see a lot more videos from you while you’re here and you’ll see Greg in more of my videos of course because we’re going to be hanging out a lot so thanks so much for watching guys hope you enjoyed this you soon bye bye-bye [Music]

What do you know about international students going to Japanese schools and being a part of the international program? (like taking their classes in English) I know places like Jyochi and Waseda offer programs like that but I'm still confused on what exactly that offers

Sharla, You have a ton of helpful insight!! Thank you so much! I'm still a high school student, but I'm looking forward to studying abroad in Osaka this summer with a language immersion program. I hope that when I am a college student to also study abroad in Japan. Again, thank you for putting your experiences here on Youtube. I appreciate it. 日本語の勉強を頑張りますね。

I did a year at Waseda (taught in English) and it was very lenient! Students would straight up sleep in class right in front of the teacher, and we hardly had any work to do between classes. My university in the UK gives me 100+ pages to read per week for each class, Waseda maybe gave me 20 per class and tbh you didn't need to do the reading to get good grades. I was really surprised! This was a really great video though, made me feel so nostalgic, my time studying in Japan was amazing and I wish I could go back ??

I'm at Keio (graduate level), and have access to some undergrad classes and Japanese teachers were quite
lenient compared to Canada (where I got my B.Sc.) and France (where I did the 1st half of my Masters), not to mention the fact that grad students in both countries don't usually have access to undergrad classes. Oh, and there are more and more programs opening up for foreigners with classes being taught in English (my program is entirely in English).

Great video ♡ I love hearing the experiences of other exchange students! I've studied at Kobe University for six months. 🙂
If it's okay I'll answer some of the questions as well for people to hear another opinion. I think it would be cool if others did the same thing too!

1. Language barrier – I also spoke a decent amount of Japanese when I arrived so I was okay too. Kobe University does not offer a lot of English classes for all faculties though. I studied at the Faculty for Intercultural Studies and still there were barely any classes in English, so I was forced to speak Japanese as well. Which was a good thing! 😉
2. Difficulty of classes – I'm from Europe, so I can only compare to the standard here. The Japanese language classes were a lot of work compared to my classes at home (I'm not a Japanese major though so my classes at home are not very strict). Other than that I had the same experience as you guys: people coming late, not showing up at all, sleeping in class. It depends on the teacher though – I had one American teacher who was very strict about all those things, so in her class the standard was pretty high.
3. University food – It was delicious! KU offers lots of different dishes in different cafeterias… they also had buffets for salads, meat and veggies, next to ramen/soba/udon stations, curry, all kinds of dons… I once asked a Japanese student how he thought the food tastes and he said "it's average", but to the Gaijin me it tasted amazing. 😉 It was very cheap too. I'd say a average lunch cost me about 400 Yen or so.
4. Being a foreigner – I didn't feel weird at university. Everyone was really friendly and interested in meeting foreigners. My faculty had a special room where foreign students and Japanese students could hang out together, and I spent most of my breaks there. 🙂 Outside of university I was very much aware of the fact that I'm a foreigner. There weren't that many western foreigners in Kobe, so it seems like people weren't used to our appearance. I felt stared at a lot and people were shy talking to me.
5. Special treatment – I only took one class that was actually for Japanese students and not for foreigners. It was in Japanese but used a English textbook. While the language spoken in class was Japanese, I was allowed to write my essays and the final paper in English. 🙂
6. Professors – The professors I had for Japanese classes were all amazing. I had a different professor for each day of the week, and every one of them was strict but fun in their own way, so it ended up being a really good balance. I loved going to those classes. Some professors of my other classes were the typical "lecture" kind, but I'd say all of them were very friendly and nice to foreign students.

I was in one of national uni in Osaka for a year as an exchange student. I don't know if it was just me or what, but the Japanese students in my uni were kinda indifferent to us foreign students and being so cold, should I say. ofc not all of them behaved like that. i remember hanging out with the other foreign students and Japanese I know from my parttime job and people I met at izakaya a lot rather than the Japanese students from my uni

@SharlaInJapan I was wondering what the age range of students at university are in Japan? Here in N. America there are students range from 18-55 years old, sometimes even older.

I was also wondering, do you know anyone who finished their bachelor's then study abroad to Japan for a Master's or Language school? Or do students who finished their bachelor's then move straight to careers in Japan?

Thank you!

You can actually get the work permit with your student visa when you arrive to the country: you just ask for it when they make your zairyu card at the airport. I asked for the permit when I went for my exchange to Kyoto in 2015 and I got it straight away. Although I ended up not working at all while there it was still good to have in case I would have wanted to work.

I'm sure if I went to a normal university it would be different but there are ways around the difficulty of university here haha.

This video was so helpful! (Love all your videos OC) I have decided (almost) that I want to take an undergraduate degree in Japan, English-track since I don't know enough Japanese. I'm excited, but I’m also scared that I won’t "fit" in because I'm a foreigner, and I will also be older than anyone else since I already have been studying for 3 years at a university in Norway(bachelor) I really want to do this, but I can’t get that little doubt out of my mind! Were you ever in doubt before you divided to go study I Japan? Or does somebody else have some helpful experiences?

I am currently nominated from my uni to study in Japan for a year. I'm still waiting for the partner unis reply. If I go I'll take Japanese language courses but I'm starting to get more and more worried because my Japanese language proficiency is very low. If I get accepted I might spam your videos with questions…thank you for your videos they help with preparing on what to expect, even if I've been to Japan 3 times already, there definitely is a difference from going as a student and living in Japan… I'm very nervous so far but hope I can help others with my own experiences 🙂

In my university (in Australia) unfortunately only certain degrees can be considered for exchange so I found this quite interesting. Mine can be done overseas but cost would be my biggest issue. So I'll just keep saving as much as I can to travel after I finish next year. Although I've heard rumours that until we pay our uni fees back to the government we aren't allowed to go overseas, or so I've been told. Also unfortunate is our government wants to increase the cost of degrees and pushing them upwards to some being $100,000 instead of the $30,000 for my current degree. ?

This is my second video with both of you and I have to say that they were both quite informative and entertaining. I am finishing up a PhD in history at a well-known midwestern university in America and was thinking about applying for jobs in Japan. I looked online and found a program from the Japan Society that seems to have a path for that very purpose (https://www.jsps.go.jp/english/e-fellow/postdoctoral.html). In fact, I think the young woman mentioned the Japan Society as one of the entities that gave her a grant to study in the country.

I was wondering if you found many foreign teachers during your studies in Japan? Also, how prevalent was English only classes at your school? Finally, the first several years of an assistant professor's life is taken up by learning how to teach and producing enough work to get good incremental reviews and ultimately tenure. I was wondering what your thoughts were on taking that on while also learning Japanese (I would absolutely want to learn Japanese even if I wasn't on the path to a permanent Japanese professorship).
