2. Other expenses

Additional costs will be generated for textbooks, train fare, meals, medicines, ect.

3. Insurance

We strongly recommend that students purchase travel insurance through their home institution or an insurance company before their arrival to Japan so that any medical expenses will be covered on the way to/from Japan and while in Japan. No insurance is provided to short-term program participants by Sophia University or the Japanese Government.

4. Class Level

All the participants will be divided into classes of four different levels according to their placement test scores. After the first day of the class, you can move to another level with agreement between you and your teacher.
