Life Abroad

What countries do the students come from?

We have students from many different countries; China, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Sweden, Vietnam, Congo, the Philippines, USA, Indonesia, Australia, Turkey, Germany and France.

What kind of schedule do the classes follow?

There are 5 periods per day, Monday through Friday. The timetable of the lessons is as follows; morning classes from 9:00 to 13:10, and afternoon classes from 13:40 to 17:50.
Class placement depends on your Japanese ability.
Subjects such as mathematics and English are offered in addition to the regular courses for those who are interested. (you must pass an entrance exam and the tuition fees for those subjects are not included in the tuition fees for the general Japanese course.)

How can a student work part-time?

If you have a Short-time stay visa, you are not allowed to work.
Student visa holders must apply for permission to do a part-time job. If given permission, they can work in the accepted types of industries within the time frame of the visa.

<Examples of prohibited jobs>
Any work involving the entertainment and amusement industries
ex.) hostess bars, darkly lit coffee shops, bars, or gambling establishment such as mahjong parlors or places which have pachinko or slot machines
<Working hours>
28 hours per week, (During school holidays, such as summer holiday, winter holiday and spring holiday, the limit is 8 hours per day.)
<Requirements for part-time jobs>
  • Students who get good scores on the term test conducted 3 months after their entrance.
  • Students who have attended at least 95% of classes.
Students can apply for permission if they meet the requirements 1 and 2 above or all requirements from 1 to 3 below.
  • Students who have studied for at least 6 months at ECC.
  • Students who have attended at least 90% of classes.
  • Students who have exhibited good behavior.

If you work without permission, work for a prohibited business, or work more than the specified working time, it will be considered illegal and you may be punished by deportation, imprisonment or a fine. In addition you will be expelled from ECC.

How much does it cost to live in Japan?

It depends on each individual student's lifestyle.
It costs between 80,000 yen and 100,000 yen per month if you live simply.
It costs between 30,000 and 50,000 yen for housing, and 25,000 and 35,000 yen for food, transportation, incidentals etc.
Please note that after arriving in Japan, you will have to pay a deposit for housing.

What happens if a student gets hurt or sick?

There are a lot of hospitals around the school. Some hospitals employ staff who can speak English, Chinese, or Korean. At the orientation we will hand out a school handbook written in each language, which gives the names of the main hospitals, their addresses, telephone numbers, and includes some maps. If you become sick, the school staff can give you information about hospitals, so please don't worry.
As for medical bills, students who have a Student Visa can use National Health Insurance. We will explain how to obtain the National Health Insurance after you come to Japan. This insurance covers 70% of the medical bill, so you have to pay only 30%.
Unfortunately, students on a Short-stay Visa are not eligible. We recommend that you obtain insurance in your home country.
