Q: If I can’t find the institution I’m looking for on the higher education institution list, does it mean that it is not a recognized/accredited higher education institution in Japan?

A: The following may possibly explain why the institution you are looking for is not listed:

  1. it has already been abolished, merged with another institution, or changed its name,
  2. it has been established after the last update of the list, or
  3. it is a prefectural agricultural college (農業大学校). Although Professional Training Colleges are higher education institutions subject to the Tokyo Convention, all the prefectural agricultural colleges (農業大学校) are excluded from the scope as a result of discussion between governmental ministries.
