To apply for the APU Tuition Reduction Scholarship, you are required to submit a scholarship application essay in addition to your other documents at the time of application. You will be evaluated for the scholarship based on all submitted documents and your interview. It is not possible to apply for the APU Tuition Reduction Scholarship after enrollment.

There are scholarships for living expenses that you may apply for after enrollment.

Q. Does APU provide any loans or grants?
No, APU does not have a loan or grant program, but you may apply for a number of different scholarships after enrollment. You are also encouraged to apply for private scholarships in your home country.

Q. What can I study at APU?
There are two majors to choose from at APU?Asia Pacific Studies and International Management. Majoring in Asia Pacific Studies will lead to a Bachelor of Social Science degree and majoring in International Management will lead to a Bachelor of Business Administration degree. Students study major-related courses in their basis language (English or Japanese) while also taking language courses in the opposite language.

Q. I've never been to Japan and I don't speak Japanese. Can I still study at APU?
Yes. Many of our international students have never visited Japan or studied Japanese before studying at APU. Almost all courses at APU are offered in both English and Japanese, meaning applicants only need sufficient ability in one of these languages at the time of enrollment. However, for English-based students that have no Japanese language abilities, it is highly encouraged for you to start learning basic Japanese on your own before coming to APU. This will ensure you have a smooth start as you will be required to take intense Japanese language classes in order to graduate. The reverse applies to Japanese speakers with limited or no English ability.

Q. Am I required to study Japanese at APU?
In order to graduate, it is necessary for English-based undergraduate students to fulfill at least 16 credits of Japanese language courses (excluding third year transfer students). Most students fulfill this requirement by the end of their second year. However, APU encourages students to continue their Japanese studies beyond the minimum requirement as Japanese language skills greatly benefit students when applying for jobs.

Q. Can I major in Japanese at APU?
APU does not offer a degree in Japanese but English-based undergraduate students (excluding third year transfer students) undergo intense Japanese language classes as part of their regular degree. The reverse applies to students who enroll on a Japanese basis.

Q. What career support does APU offer?
APU has extensive support through the Career Office to help students in their job search. For the 2013 Academic Year, 94.4% of APU students looking for employment received at least one job offer by the time of graduation. Some students choose to continue their studies by pursuing a graduate degree at APU or other graduate schools around the world.
