A really useful article! This article provides all information for Indian students who want to pursue Under Graduate, Technical and Special studies in Japan. The article is very timely because the last date of submission of application for MEXT scholarships (during the current year) is 17th June, 2016. MEXT scholarships are offered by the Japanese Government. These scholarships are meant for such students who want to study in Japanese universities in Undergraduate level, and in Technological colleges as well as in Specialized Training Colleges. However, I feel that the most important aspect of this scholarship is that the selected students have to undergo one year of Japanese language training.
I personally know that Mr. Sinha from Japan Information Centre, New Delhi is a very helpful person and always help Indian applicants in every possible manner.
