THE Japanese Embassy in Brunei Darussalam is now accepting applications for the Japanese Government Scholarship Programme for 2020 from Bruneian students keen on studying in Japan.

The Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports and Technology (MEXT) of Japan offers scholarships to international students who wish to study in Japan under the Japanese Government (MEXT) Scholarship Programme every year.

This scholarship aims to foster human resources who, through study in Japan, will become bridges of friendship between Brunei and Japan, and who will contribute to the development of both countries and the world.

There are four types of scholarships offered under the programme: (1) research students; (2) undergraduate students; (3) college of technology students; and (4) specialised training college students.

The composition of each scholarship is different, but all of them cover tuition, living expenses and transportation fees between Brunei and Japan.

This is a valuable opportunity for Bruneians to study in Japan, allowing them to broaden their horizons and increase future job prospects. Under the programme, students will not only enhance their academic qualifications, but also learn about the Japanese people, their culture and language.

Interested students are required to submit their application documents to the Embassy not later than June 10, 2019. Further information and application documents can be obtained from the embassy of Japan website at
