Can join any week if you are higher than beginner level, and meet certain visa requirements. Please inquire for individual guidance.

  • Most schools have main intakes in January, April, July or October each year.

  • However this school showcased in Niigata only has an intake in April or October. Please inquire for other options, or see similar courses in Kyoto or Tokyo with intake 4 times a year for long-term courses.

    • You must apply 6 months before for long-term courses; due to student visa immigration processes. We can guide you through this.

    • For getting into vocational college from beginner Japanese level, a 2 year course starting April is highly recommended, to graduate in March and enter the vocational school in April, which most schools have their intake.

    • Please inquire for personal guidance on starting terms, durations and requirements, as it depends on the individual.
