Student Manual in Japan

Studying in Japan can be one of the most important steps and fruitful experiences in a student’s academic journey. Nevertheless, it can be a very difficult process for many. 

Amongst the difficulties are the differences in the educational system and lifestyle as well as the possible lack of information, which can lead to making wrong decisions and wasting time and effort instead of enjoying this important journey. Therefore, 15 volunteers from the Syrian Association, who have studied in Japan, have written this guide to support students in their academic journey in Japan.

The manual is currently being written. We are expecting to finish the manual in Jul 2020. Kindly visit around this time.
