Institute for Japanese Language and Culture

Program of Instruction

J. F. Oberlin University Institute for Japanese Language and Culture is one of the best educational institutions for non-Japanese students who would like to study in Japan. The standard time required for graduation is one year. If you are accepted to another Japanese institution before starting your second semester, you can leave our institute after the first semester (six months), in which case tuition for the following term will be refunded.

Our Institute offers the following four courses:

A. Graduate School Admission Course

This course provides preparatory education for international students who wish to enter a Japanese graduate school. Students enrolled in this course will acquire Japanese language skills needed for their future studies as well as specialized knowledge appropriate to their fields.

B. Undergraduate Transfer Course

This course provides preparatory education for international students who wish to transfer to a Japanese university as juniors. Students enrolled in this course will acquire Japanese language skills needed for their future studies as well as specialized knowledge appropriate to their fields.

C. University Admission Course

This course is designed for applicants who wish to enter a Japanese university as freshmen. The aim of the course is to provide students with sufficient Japanese language and other academic skills to pass university examinations, achieve high scores on the Examination for Japanese University Admission for International Students (EJU), and pass level N1 of the Japanese-Language Proficiency Test.

D. Special Japanese Language Course

This is a short-term study course designed for applicants who are current undergraduate or graduate students and who intend to pursue study or research in Japan. (Applicants must submit a Plan for Study and Research.)
