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.

The food served in the dormitories are not halal. 

However, common kitchens are available in all dormitories and you could prepare your meals there. 

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 online are meant for general application.

If you apply through us under the Gakushu-Shorei Dormitory Program(学習奨励寮), 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 a Japanese language 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 with us after submitting your documents to your school in Japan.
