Thanks a lot for your help! This is not a personal statement. Remember that your reviewers are going to be reading dozens or hundreds of these, so they may not give your plan as much attention as you want. The Japanese Studies scholarship requires a high level of Japanese ability from all applicants, so it makes sense that the interviews would be conducted entirely in Japanese. Hi Fabio, Thank you for your kind words! Then your plan would work for either one. Apart from the useful facts that Meghna has already stated, I would like to point out few things that they particularly look for in a research proposal.
In Japan, black is always the new black. The form says that attachments are allowed, and I would certainly consider the list of references to be an attachment, so that would not count as part of the two pages. I hope you can possibly help me if you know anyone in my field??? Produce intermediate documents if it helps personally, I wrote a one page draft in French to send it to some prof to gauge the water. Describe in detail and with specifics — particularly concerning the ultimate goal s of your research in Japan. I recently wrote an article about how to find English-language degree programs that might help you. I do not yet have a sample created for that, unfortunately.
Hi Stanley, Thank you for your kind words. They should be in your references section already.
Hi Najmus Saqib, You need to find a research question that you want to pursue and then format your proposal as I outlined in this reswarch.
As I also said, whether Japanese ability matters depends on the embassy. Once you wrote your full proposal, answering this question should be easy. And this is exactly what is asked for the BSRP.
I am confused since I have heard that there must be a period of training before starting doctoral program. Thanks again, are you enjoying your research? This section should be only one or two paragraphs long, emphasising why the research problem is propsoal investigating, why your research study is unique, and how it should advance existing knowledge.
Thanks so much for your help! Since MEXT requires that you study a topic that you majored in in the past, this is your opportunity to show the connection.
However, if you are applying through a “special” university-recommended program like the International Graduate Schloarship, rules may be different. Thank you for the reply, it means a lot regardless!
MEXT Scholarship Field of Study and Research Program Plan Elements
Everyone who applies researrch to study in Japan, so just talking about how much you’re interested in the country is not what’s going to make you stand out. Pages Home About Me. So do they still concern about your grades from your undergraduate studies?
Good Luck — Travis from TranSenz. I wrote more about contacting professors here: What should I do?

I got the check by searching for clinics in London that do visa medicals, since the tests on the form are very similar to those needed for a visa. So, you would need to be prepared to proposak why only that professor is qualified to supervise your research. I am afraid that colored copies of certified transcripts and certificates will cause confusion for reviewing staff because they might find it difficult to distinguish between the original and colored copies.
mexxt Describe articulately the research you wish to carry out in Japan. I don’t know much about those programs. If you find a particular area in that test that you struggle with, then I would recommend that you look for general textbooks on that portion.
Well it’s Golden Week here so finally Csholarship have a chance First, there are two colleges with English course that I am applying for. How is it significant within the subject areas covered in your class?
The rest of my points are written with embassy selection in mind. Lists only the literature that you actually used or cited in your proposal. Best of luck to you!
I was wondering whether yours was accepted. I’m from Hungary and what I heard during the tests is what most of them who took it are studying Japanese culture and linguistics in Budapest however I’m pretty much going as a grauated, “outsider” from the capital city. I do recommend that you include your research student period in your timeline.
If it gets too sa,ple, the people reviewing your application might not think you have a plan in place, they might think you just have a vague idea.
