Quick question - with needing a degree to get a working visa for Japan, does anyone know if you need a degree if you're from Germany ? I know you do with UK and America at least, but can't find any info on if it's the same with Germany (I assume it is)
Any help is appreciated if you know - if not, I'll keep trawling the net and hopefully land on something helpful.

The degree is a requirement for a working visa in japan - it needs to be a BA or equiv or higher - no deplomas, foundation degrees etc
You can find the information on the Japanese Embassy site (in english) - unless it is specifically stated for a specific country it applies to all.
Usually for the education, it is supposed to be in English, because you are wanting to be an english teacher - although the english specific is mainly for the employers and not the visa (the length of schooling is for the visa)... for the employer they will also consider you if you have an English proficiency test at the level they set!
