Q. Can students choose a boarding high school by themselves?
Depending on vacancies and circumstances, BEYOND Tomorrow discusses with partner schools. Students have a chance to state the country of their first choice among the BEYOND Tomorrow’s affiliated schools at the time of application, but their choice may not be accepted. Our partner schools are all top boarding schools in the world. Students are encouraged to make the most of their opportunities in each school.
Q. Which costs are covered by the program?
A. It depends on schools. We will inform the successful candidates as soon as they are nominated to schools.
In principle, member schools will offer full scholarships that include tuition, room and board. However, some schools include school uniform within the tuition while others do not. Students may also need to pay for their stay outside the campus during the holiday or flight tickets back to Japan as most school residences close during the break. BEYOND Tomorrow will provide directly to the students scholarships that are expected to help cover other expenses including airfare and pocket money (lump-sum relocation allowance of USD2,500 and monthly stipend of USD250).
Q. Will students be required to withdraw from their current high school in Japan?
A. Not necessarily.
Whether students withdraw from the current high school or take a leave of absence is up to students. However, BEYOND Tomorrow High School Study Program encourages students to graduate from the boarding school.
