!!NEW!!

2022年度春学期に留学予定の皆さんへ
Dear Prospective Students

Unfortunately, the Japanese government suspended the entry of new arrivals from November 30th, 2021 due to the recent spread of “omicron variant.”
Thus, classes for the spring semester of 2022 will be offered online while students cannot come to Japan. If students are able to arrive in Japan by June 11th, 2022, they will attend classes face-to-face in the NUFS classroom.


JAPANESE LANGUAGE COURSE (JLC)

Considering the possibility that students will be able to come to Japan by June 11th, JL core classes will be held only in the morning from 9:10am to 12:20pm (1st and 2nd period) in JAPAN time. (Evening classes will not be offered this semester).
For course description please see here.

A placement test is scheduled to be conducted in early February to determine your Japanese level. Your Japanese class will be determined by this placement test’s result.
