Program Description

International students enrolled in undergraduate/graduate courses from partner universities can apply to the Japanese Language Program (JLP).
Japanese Studies Students, Japanese-government-sponsored scholarship recipients, recommended by an Japanese embassy abroad are also accepted into our Japanese Language Program (JLP).
The program offers small size classes in order to improve students' Japanese language abilities effectively and students will be divided into small groups based on their Japanese language proficiency. Additionally, international students of Japanese Language Program (JLP) can take regular undergraduate course subjects alongside with regular KCUFS students to learn more about Japanese culture and society.

Student Support
JLP Partners

JLP partners provide immediate support and friendship to new JLP students and help them successfully adjust to the new culture and environment in Japan. For each new JLP student, a couple of current KCUFS students become his or her partners. JLP partners begin communicating with new JLP students before their arrival in Japan to help them prepare for what's ahead at KCUFS. The partners continue to be friend and support JLP students in daily and campus life and also offer opportunities to practice Japanese outside classes.
