The exchange rate changes every day and we are instructed to provide you with the pricing in JPY.
Simplest way to calculate?
If the exchange rate is JPY100 = MYR 3.80
- JPY amount x 0.038
- Example, JPY1,000 = 1000 x 0.038 = MYR 38
Yes, not a problem at all.
A to Z Language Centre is appointed as the official agent handling matters in Malaysia on behalf of the foundation.
If you choose to apply through other means, you are responsible entirely for your application and we may not be able to provide any assistance should problem arises.
We are also unable to undo the damages or help you re-apply for anything should matters turn out differently from your expectation.
No, we do not charge agent fees & handling charges for the application.
Halal meals are not available at the dormitories at the moment.
That being said, you could use the common kitchen to prepare your meals.
You can opt for “no-meals”, but the monthly rental is fixed and no discounts will be given even though you are not having the meals throughout your stay.
The prices you found are meant for general application.
Under the Gakushu-Shorei Dormitory Program, the monthly rental is fixed according to the areas/prefectures regardless of the dormitory chosen.
As mentioned at the introduction of this page, the foundation understands that one of the biggest worries international students have is the high cost for accommodations in Japan. Thus, the foundation made it a point to provide assistance through this program, meant only for international students.
If you are applying for the school through us as well, we will assist you in sorting out and applying for other available dormitories (usually tied to your school).
If we are not the agents handling your school application, you are required to seek assistance from your school instead.
Most of the time, it is due to late submission and there are no available dormitories near your school.
As such, we advise you to
- Apply within the application period, as soon as you confirm to which school you are applying to.
- Provide your top 3 dormitory choices instead of just 1 (for Tokyo applicants).
