How to apply

The JET Programme application process is long and competitive. Please note that we receive a very high volume of applications each year and only a limited number will make it through to the final shortlist. Prospective applicants are advised to read through our website and guidelines thoroughly to make an informed decision as to whether they are able to commit to this process.

Applying to the JET Programme is a 2-stage process:

Step 1: Online Application Form

You will need to register with our Applications Portal in order to access the online application form. This will be available through our homepage in October. Please ensure that you read all the instructions carefully, save regularly, and do not try to submit your form until all the relevant sections have been completed. It will not be possible to correct mistakes after the form has been submitted.

Step 2: Application Pack

After clicking ‘submit,’ you will be able to download a PDF copy of your completed application form. You must submit 4 copies of this form to the Embassy of Japan in London along with a number of supporting documents. Your application pack must arrive by the deadline or your application will not be processed. No exceptions to the deadline can be made.

NOTE: Any costs incurred in obtaining the required documents are to be borne by the applicant. Submitted documents will not be returned. Please note that no feedback is available to unsuccessful applicants.
