I had been to Japan before, but never lived here as a student. Thankfully, GLOBIS was there every step of the way to ensure a smooth transition. The staff were always friendly and reliable, so I had no problems settling in and quickly felt at home in Tokyo. 

Housing Assistance

GLOBIS works hard to ensure you a smooth transition to living in Japan. Our housing services offer practical information on renting cost-effective apartments. GLOBIS can act as a guarantor for apartments, which is often required for house rental in Japan, saving you time and money, and ensuring a comfortable relocation.

Immigration Procedures

We assist you with all immigration issues during your stay by helping with documents and negotiating with the appropriate government officials.

Health Insurance

In addition to Japanese national health insurance, GLOBIS provides special insurance policies offering additional coverage for overseas students at low premiums. We also have a 24-hour emergency phone service in English.

Family Support

GLOBIS takes extra care to make sure that every student’s family has a wholesome and fulfilling experience in Japan.

Your family will be supported through visa sponsorship, international networking events, bilingual information services, introductions to Japanese language-schools, nurseries and everything else your loved ones need to live safely and comfortably.

Living Costs

We help you apply for the dozens of scholarship opportunities from Japanese foundations. You can also receive discounts on transportation, meals, cellphone plans, and more.

Other Services

To make your transition to living in Japan as smooth as possible, GLOBIS holds orientation sessions covering tips on how to settle in Japan, learning Japanese lifestyle habits, and enjoying Japanese culture. You can learn more through the “Japanese Life Guide” published by GLOBIS. We also offer individual consultations upon request.
