saving money through part-time work. Please note the following if you want to receive any allowances
by working.
JAIST does not allow MEXT scholarship students to have a part-time work in principle, but activities
which fall under any of the followings, will be considered that MEXT scholarship students can apply
for the permission for part-time work. It is expected that MEXT scholarship students do these works
by volunteer as much as possible.
1) If asked to work as a cultural collaborating assistant by a public organization (a regional public
organization or an incorporated foundation)
2) If asked to work as a legal interpreter by a courthouse
3) If participating in a particular internship that is useful for education and research
4) If allowed by the Head of the Student Affairs Department that the activity other than above contribute
to study and research
In cases where students are directly engaged in assisting education or research at JAIST, such
as a TA, RA, LA, Researcher, or Tutor etc., a permission for part-time work is not required.
