Student Support

We have set up many types of services to help support our students in their Japanese studies


The following scholarships are available:

Tokyo YMCA International Cooperation Scholarship

Volunteer Supporters

For students who wish to practice Japanese with a Japanese native, Volunteers Supporters are available. These Japanese volunteers who have registered with the Tokyo YMCA will also help students get accustomed to life in Japan.


International students on Student Visas will be enrolled in an insurance policy that will compensate for medical expenses. The fee for this insurance (approximately ¥10,000/year) will be covered by the YMCA.

However, students are responsible for taking out the National Health Insurance on their own. Anyone staying in Japan for longer than a year must enroll in the National Health Insurance. Fees are determined by the local municipal government.
