    About the student Visa

    The visa obtainable with ARC Academy’s Admission Certificate is a Student Visa. The initial period of stay is of 1 year and 3 months, but it can be extended of one more year or 6 more months as necessary.
    Activities for people in Japan under a student visa, are limited to study. As the student visa is connected to the enrollment into an educational institution, any remaining validity is revoked in case of withdrawal from school.
    Attendance rates are very important for foreign students. In case of bad attendance rates, admission into higher education and visa extension can be denied, and the students are requested to leave the school. ARC Academy requires its students to have an attendance rate of 90% or higher every month.
    Please, do your best to comply with this rule and make good use of your time as a foreign student!
