Yo SPMers! Are you looking for scholarships that give you free (but hard-to-get) ticket to Japan? Let me tell you something, JPA offers that tickets. And it's up to you whether you want it or not.
So, what's Japan program anyway
? There's two type of programs offered by JPA (if u refer to the online application form) which are degree and diploma program. Both of these progams offer courses like Engineering/Kejuruteraan,Sains sosial/Social Science, Pharmacy/farmasi, Dentistry/Pergigian and etc (i dont knw the current one)
Diploma program/Program Teknikal Jepun(for bumis and non-bumis)
For this program, you will be taking intensive Japanese classes in Intec,Shah Alam for 1 year ++ and if you pass the special exam, you will continue your study in Technical College in Japan for 3 years. If you complete your study with good grades, you might be able to continue your degree in Japan too under JPA scholarship.
Degree Program/Program Akademik Jepun (for bumis only)
As for this one, you have to take foundation studies for 2 years in either Ambang Asuhan Jepun (AAJ), University Malaya or Institute Bahasa Teikyo(IBT).During your foundation, you will be learning Japanese Language and subjects like Physics, Chemistry, Maths and English. All of these subjects will be taught in English in 1st sems and Japanese in 2nd sems and onwards. If you pass the special exam known as EJU (i cant remember what it is stand for), you can further your study in top national universities
in Japan for 4 years.
The difference between this two program is that for degree, you have the guarantee
to further your study untill degree level while the other one (diploma) dont have it.
As for me, im currently studying in UM for degree program. It's tough
but i can assure you that you'll have so much fun
studying here. If there are some mistakes in my information, pls do correct me.
People, hurry up!!! Start your scholarship hunting!!!Make sure you pick what's the best for yourself. Make a wise decision.Thank you and All the best!!!
