L2 Courses for students with lower English proficiency
In addition, English-taught courses for NUFS domestic students may also be made available to exchange students. These L2 courses will require a lower English proficiency and will not therefore be recommended for exchange students with a native or near-native English proficiency. Further, these courses will not be included in the 7-classroom hour/week minimum, and can only be taken if the said minimum has been met with the Japan Language Course and/or Global Japan Studies Course classes detailed above.
