Intensive Japanese Course Admissions

The Intensive Japanese Course is a preparatory course where Japanese language and affairs are taught to international students seeking entry to Asia University. It was established in 1954, and has served as a pioneer in the field of bringing international students to Japan.

Since then, there have been over 2,000 graduates of the course. The one-year curriculum is comprised of Japanese (script, writing, grammar, reading comprehension, and listening comprehension); Japanese affairs, which teaches the geography and culture of Japan; English; and conversational English.

The Intensive Japanese Course is made up of international students only, but there are plenty of opportunities for exchanges to take place between the international and Japanese students. Through the various events hosted by the International Student Association, many friendships have been born that reach beyond borders.
