Re: VinJ 20/21 applicants

Well, since most of us didn't get contacted yet, I think it says in the acknowledgement document that we should know if we are selected ideally by the end of April. So don't worry, we have a few more weeks. The situation is probably a bit slower due to the global pandemic.

Re: VinJ 20/21 applicants

By the way, I know my chances are very low (I'm attending a Master's Degree in Mathematics and most of the positions are not available for me), so I'm not too nervous about all this. But I'm still hoping :D I am not nervous at all. I know i don't have many chances anyways. I applied "just in c...

Well since the deadline has passed, I wish you all good luck! Try to focus on something else since we'll be waiting for about a month now. I have Uni exams so that will keep me busy anyway!

Re: VinJ 20/21 applicants

Hello everyone! This is my last chance to get in! But since last year I didn't even get shortlisted (around 17% chance to get shortlisted), I'm not too hopeful. I'm going all in this year with realistic expectations. Last year around 700 students applied but only around 30 got it sooo, everyone's ch...

Re: Advice on other options or programmes

The two most popular scholarships for foreign students looking to join Japanese universities are MEXT and JASSO. But if you don't get any, then you'll need to fund yourself. It's not exactly cheap, but nothing compared to the US! Check at the Japanese embassy website of your country for funding opt...

Re: Advice on other options or programmes

Joining a graduate school is probably one of the best ways to get in. Universities in Japan are eager to get more international students, so there is plenty of opportunity there. The top 5 or so are quite competitive to get in, but anything else should be quite feasible. You could do either a maste...

Advice on other options or programmes

Hello everyone! Like most of you, I was super stoked when I found this programme. It hits all my checkmarks since it provides me an internship which is financed and I would get to live in Japan for one whole year which is a dream come true. My major is Information Technology but I do lack working ex...
