Application for MEXT Supported Places

Starting in the 2016 Fiscal Year, MEXT will provide free places in IB workshops for participants who meet certain eligibility criteria*

  • Public Officials working for Boards of Education, with approval from their organization.
  • Teachers from a domestic educational facility which can either be a school provided for in the School Education Act of Japan or a private school accredited by WASC, CIS or ACSI. Teachers must have the approval of their Head of School.
  • The school can be an IB, Candidate, Interested or Authorised School, or just interested in finding out more about the IB.

* Priority will be given to applicants who have not previously attended a Category 1 workshop, and priority will also be given to applicants from non-authorized schools and from Boards of Education. To ensure this service is available to as many schools/organizations as possible, we may choose to limit the number of applicants from any one school/organization depending on the number of requests and the places available.


To apply for a MEXT supported event, please complete the online form here.

Application is acceptable until 24 March 2017 (12 p.m.). Subject to the approval of MEXT, all registered applicants will be notified via email on 28 March 2017.


If you have any further inquiries with regards to the registration process, please contact the Registration Support Officer via email:

*Note that some of these workshops may be supported by English-speaking IB workshop leaders.
