MEXT and how I land in this country

Hello, all. This is my first post. I haven’t written blog since long time ago.
Actually I had one in ameblo. I wrote in Japanese.
But that one has already forgotten *duh*

Recently, I got a lot of SNS messages from friends and my juniors, asking how come I could get a scholarship to Japan. I decided to write about it then

I always fond of Japan since I was a lil girl. I am so obsessed with this country lol
I graduate from my previous uni in 2012. By September 2012, I was working in a company whilst looking for an opportunity to pursue a Master degree.

Back then, I was interested in Cinema and Motion Picture, and I found this uni

*I actually applied for Dongguk uni in Korea as well, but things happened*

I applied it. I went through their selection. First was document selection. This screening is basically to know about yourself, your previous education (grade and GPA), your goal. I advised you to send a mail to the professor you’re interested in to get a broaden vision about your goal. I sent an email to a professor before, and he helped me about how to explain my ideas and goals.

Then one day I got this email:

The 2nd Screening was interview. For those who live abroad, don’t worry, they can do it through skype. In my current uni, they have 2 school semester : Spring (lessons are in Japanese) and Fall (lessons are in English). The language for the interview depends on which semester you choose. Since I applied for Fall Semester 2013, my interview was conducted in English

If you passed the 2nd screening, you almost accepted! The next step was completing admission documents.

I did not have any scholarship when I passed the 1st screening. On the 2nd screening, one of the interviewee asked me
“Do you want to get a scholarship?”

I will write about the scholarship on next post. I am not sure about the admission system now, since my graduate school change their curriculum.

Feel free to ask me question or leave a comments 😀
