Our student visa courses have by far the smallest class sizes of any accredited school in Japan. Students who join the student visa course will study in our normal communicative and friendly classes, and have access to all the great services we provide to our short-term students too. In short, our school is very different from almost all other accredited Japanese schools, and those differences mean your students will be happier and more satisfied with us!

Student visa course start dates: First Monday of April and October each year

For April start: send your application by November 20 of the previous year
