Long-Term Course

This is a course to prepare students for the necessary Japanese language skills required for entering Japanese universities, graduate schools and vocational schools. This course aims to develop critical thinking and communication skills in Japanese that are required for passing the entrance examinations as well as attending lessons at those educational institutes.

Course Characteristics

Foreign students who would like to enter Japanese universities, junior colleges and vocational schools need to complete 12 years of formal school education (primary and secondary educations) or education at the equivalent level eithe in Japan or in foreign countries. As this course is officially recognized by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology of Japan as a university preparatory course, attending this course will qualify you for entering Japanese universities even if you do not have 12 years of formal school education in your country. For graduate schools, a bachelor degree (university graduate) is required.
