38,000 out of 130,000 Vietnamese students overseas are in Japan

Mot The Gioi cited the latest report of the Ministry of Education and Training (MOET) as saying that 38,000 out of 130,000 Vietnamese students overseas are in Japan.

Meanwhile, Dat Viet cited a report of the Japanese side as saying that there are 60,000 Vietnamese students in Japan, but only 7,000 are really studying at universities, while the others are staying in Japan to work illegally or commit crimes.

Reporters, after talking with many students who had studied in Japan, found that many Vietnamese registered under for self-sufficient study because they wanted to find jobs.

Nguyen Nhu Q, 25, was one student. He went to Japan four years ago. Before he could attend professional training courses, he had to learn Japanese for one year. During that time, he had to work to earn his living.

“Everything is expensive in Japan. If you don’t work, you will not have money to cover your basic needs,” he said.

Under Japanese law, students can take extra jobs and work for no more than 28 hours a week. Meanwhile, during a long holiday, they can work for eight hours maximum a day.

“Most Vietnamese work at restaurants, teach foreign languages, do cleaning, or sell and deliver newspapers. They can also work at factories or convenience stores,” he said.

“There are many jobs for you to choose. However, if you are bad at Japanese, you will have to take hard work,” he explained.

Also according to Q, the pay is calculated in accordance with regional basic salary. In Tokyo, for example, the basic wage is about VND200,000 per hour, while in other provinces, the wage would be lower. The rent for a room in Tokyo is VND10 million a month.

Q noted that many people registered to study in Japan, but since they spent too much time on working, they don’t have time for study. Therefore, they give up studying and work for money.

“Most of the students who went with me four years ago have given up studying. Some of them did not intend to study from the beginning. They just registered to study to obtain the visa to Japan,” he said.

Tran Van T, who has seven years’ experience, said it is not difficult to find jobs in Japan. “There are many jobs. However, if you are good at Japanese, you will be able to find better jobs,” he said, adding that those who can speak Japanese can earn 1,000 yen per hour.
