Singapore Students' Association (Japan)
Being an association for Singaporean students studying in Japan, we are responsible for providing opportunities for Singaporean students in Japan to meet up. Our members are mainly full-time undergraduate and graduate students attending universities in Japan, as well as students who are here on university exchange programmes.
Want to Study in Japan?
Check out our sister portal, Study in Japan Singapore, that has information on undergraduate, graduate, and student exchange programmes to Japan. There is also information on cost of living in Japan, scholarships that are available, and a guide to the MEXT Scholarship.
Why Join SSAJ?
Studying in Japan isn't all about schoolwork or chionging for that "A". Make the best of your time here, meet new people and have fun! We're here to help you keep in touch with your Singaporean side, play some games, and also chill over some food. So join us and come for our events!
Meet students from different universities and different prefectures.
We jointly hold events with the Embassy, Singapore Global Network and the Singapore Association in Japan, so you get to meet people doing all sorts of interesting things in their lives.
On top of holding various talks with our guests, we also extend invitations to our members to participate in opportunities like professional job fairs.
Are you hunting for internships, part-time jobs, event-based jobs, full-time jobs in Japan, or full-time jobs in Singapore that value Japanese speakers?
Join our mailing list to keep tabs on all our lobangs!
We work with Singaporean and Japanese companies, government organisations, as well as recruitment firms to bring you the best lobangs.
Our lobangs aren't just for jobs - we also provide exclusive lobangs for food & beverage discounts for Singaporean establishments in Japan. So you can satiate both your inner foodie and cheapo at the same time!
Coming to Japan soon?
We organise a Pre-Departure Meeting for new students coming to Japan each semester (March for the Spring intake, August for the Autumn intake). It's generally a chill chit-chat session where you can get to know fellow full-time students and exchange students going over. So be sure to join our mailing list for the latest info!
We pair new incoming students ('kouhais') with existing students in Japan ('senpais') , who serve as a familiar point of contact, a great source of information, and a potential new friend! Students are grouped based on their interests as well.
