  • Students are evaluated on their Japanese language proficiency every semester and then placed into a suitable Japanese language class based on their proficiency.

  • There are various elective Japanese related subjects such as Japanese economics, society, and management. Japanese related subjects are taught in English or Japanese.

  • Students can learn Japanese and experience Japanese traditional culture through activities outside the classroom. Our Japanese students also live in International Seminar House (oncampus dormitory) as resident assistants (RA) to support international students with day-to-day living and study.

  • Students have access to all facilities available to regular NGU students.
