About the study abroad costs

  1. Separately from the tuition fees, the study abroad costs listed below must be prepared one to three months prior to departure. In the event that study abroad costs are received in advance, the amount will be deducted from the total amount of study abroad costs.
  2. Since the class of 2016, the tuition fees for the fall semester have been paid in the full amount, but due to the framework of the study abroad curriculum, a scholarship of 250,000 yen is paid to each student participating in the overseas study abroad program each semester.
  3. The tuition fee of the study abroad destination university, airfares, room and board fees, overseas travel insurance costs (some study abroad universities also require other insurance) and visa-related costs are included in the study abroad cost. The listed study abroad costs are a rough estimate calculated based on the 2018 results. For this reason, the total amount for 2019 (including airfares) is expected to be revised.
  4. The foreign currency-denominated amount for the tuition fees and accommodation expenses of the study abroad destination may be affected by fluctuations in exchange rates, thus the total payment amount may fluctuate accordingly.
  5. Food expenses will vary significantly depending on personal preference and thus are omitted unless they are included in the homestay fee or dormitory fees. Local entertainment expenses are likewise not included.
  6. The program contents may change depending on the study abroad destination. Please note that in this case, the payment amount may change.
  7. Obtaining overseas travel insurance is a prerequisite to participate in the study abroad curriculum. We may ask you to join the insurance plan recommended by the Faculty of Economics in accordance with the comprehensive insurance agreement entered into between Meiji Gakuin University and JI Accident & Fire Insurance Co., Ltd.
