The School offers both a one-year course (enrollment in April or September), and an 18-month course (September enrollment only). The School is primarily for international students who wish to enroll at Fukuoka University in one of the undergraduate faculties or graduate schools. Professors of Japanese language and culture work together to equip students with the academic skills necessary for further study at university. The purpose of the school is to nurture individuals with a global perspective who are capable of contributing to wider cultural exchanges.
In addition to studying Japanese language, students enrolled in the SJLC also cover subjects such as Japanese culture and economy, mathematics and English. All courses are taught in line with students’ academic level, by faculty with an outstanding command of foreign languages and teaching experience.
General Japanese Course
Students learn Japanese through listening, conversation, reading, Chinese kanji characters and writing. Classes will be decided based on a placement test held at the time of enrollment and at the beginning of each semester. The capacity for each class is about 15 students.
Japanese Culture Course
Students learn about Japanese culture through studying Japanese society, culture, geography, history, politics and economics. In order to get an overall understanding of past and modern Japan, students study a broad range of subjects, from everyday Japanese culture and traditions to a basic understanding of Japanese society.
International Culture Course
Students learn international cross-culture, international business and management and world geography and history. This course aims to equip students with the fundamental knowledge about, and relationship between, Japan and the world from a global perspective.
This course aims to strengthen students’ basic knowledge in foundation courses, such as English and mathematics, so that they can move forward to enrolling in an undergraduate faculty or graduate school.
Students who have obtained level N2 of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) or higher are allowed to attend up to 3 undergraduate classes at Fukuoka University.
