Japanese Education System

Q: I have a question about verifying the authenticity of a certificate of graduation issued by a Japanese higher education institution. Who should I ask?

A: Please contact the institution that issued the certificate directly. You can use the search function on this website to search details of each Japanese higher education institution, including contact information and official website.

Please contact us in the event the institution is not included in our list of higher education institutions.

Please note that NIC-Japan does not provide services such as judging the authenticity of certificates or similar documents. Furthermore, the format of graduation certificates and the like issued by educational institutions are not legally stipulated, and are thus determined at the discretion of each educational institution. If you need to confirm the authenticity of a document, please directly contact the institution which has awarded the qualification and/or issued the certificate.
