Japanese go to Australia to learn English.

If you want to learn Japanese, it would make more sense. There are many Chinese who come this way and end up staying by marrying the locals. There are many tuition centers which can sponsor you to study Japanese. They often arrange for your accommodation and part time job. One of the cheapest one is Yono Gakuin Japanese school, located in Saitama prefecture. The fees start at about $500 a month, and about the same for a room in a dormitory.

If you wish to study in an English university, you can apply at Sophia University, Temple University or University of Tsukuba.

For a Nigerian to apply to study a short courses in English is highly suspicious and your visa will be denied. If you are willing to study for a degree and you have $15,000 a year, then it's easier. Otherwise, stick to Short Japanese course. They will give you 6-12 months visa and you are allowed to work part time. Many factories and farms are desperate for workers. Japanese refuse to work there.

About racism issues, there is plenty in Japan as well. Expect to be stopped frequently by the police. Failure to present an alien card will automatically result in paying 200,000 yen fine, about $1800.

Anyone on here might contradict me in what I am saying but here's what i think.

If You have the cash to do those courses, then go ahead. As for the aftermath of what happens when your done,

Here's the trick part, As an African, you have to work Twice as hard to convince the prospect employers that you are the poo.

If you can't speak the Japanese language well, then your options Will be very limited.

It depends which option you choose.

If you study in Japanese, you will need an extra year to learn the language. This is the best option because you can't function in Japan without knowing Japanese. Also, it's easier to find work to support yourself while studying.

If you study in English, it's fine too. However, if you plan to stay in Japan, you will have a hard time without learning the language. Most employees will not hire you if you have no language skills.

It is much easier to work after you study in a proper Japanese university. Japanese do not want to have babies and people are very choosy. So if you have a Japanese degree and language skills, many employers are happy to sponsor you , especially after they made it easier to hire foreigners under Abe administration.

It is harder to secure scholarship. Most scholarship is reserved for Asian, EU citizens and Americans. They too offer scholarships to Japanese students under special agreements. For Africans, studying for a Ph.D is the only option to secure a government scholarship
(Monbukagakusho). Check with their embassy for more information of what kind of scholarship is available for Nigerian citizens.

You are absolutely right about the need to know Japanese.

Post education, the environment is much easier now for Africans than it was just 5 years ago. As long as you can speak Japanese and have a degree from Japan, many companies are willing to sponsor you for a work visa. It is not as complicated as securing a work visa in America or in EU countries.

Also, another option is to get married to a Japanese if that is your plan. Spouse visa is 3-5 years, after that you may apply for a PR visa and then a Japanese passport if you wish.

I wish Nigerians can learn from the Japanese. We are overpopulated in this country and still giving birth.

When facing the visa officer please think.

Why would someone from an English speaking country
go to a non English speaking country
to learn English?

How can you explain this?

Exactly... doesnt make any sense but Nigerians who has never traveled out would not be able to comprehend that.

On the other hand, i guess one can argue that the applicant loves the Japanese work ethic and culture and would do anything to study in Japan?

@Oyb and Moonraker, don't get me wrong because this is not a laughing matter abeg o. I asked the question making reference to the second option as quoted in my previous comment;
" Also, another option is to get married to a
Japanese if that is your plan. Spouse visa is 3-5
years, after that you may apply for a PR visa and
then a Japanese passport if you wish."

Japanese women are much more smarter and hard to break down. Thanks to your brothers who have messed everything up for legit folks.

Long story short, scrap that plan, it wont work. Even if u succeed in getting married, You being Nigerian alone will make the process difficult.
