Courses

Japanese courses at Kamiyama Gakuin are designed to prepare students for entry into higher education institutions in Japan (universities, graduate schools and specialist academies). Students can choose to study with us for up to 2 years (course A), or for shorter terms (courses B, C and D) at a more accelerated pace, with all courses ending in March. Classes run from 8:40-14:20, Monday to Thursday, and 8:40-11:30 on Fridays. School facilities (library, classrooms) are also available outside of these hours for students wishing to self-study.

For course A only, we offer a preparatory class for complete beginners, but students with prior experience (preferably to JLPT N5 level) can apply for any course - once enrolled, students will undertake a placement test in order to be assigned to a class appropriate for their skill level. As a guide, students wishing to achieve N1 by the end of their time with us should possess the "Ideal starting Japanese level" for their chosen course as detailed below:
