About Study in Japan

Study in Japan

The aim of this program is to educate people the importance of learning the Japanese language (Nihongo). JEP communicates how a person can use such skill to his advantage and how he can be successful in Japan or anywhere in the world.

This program is the stepping stone for College graduates who aim to build a career or pursue extensive studies in Japan.

The student will be studying intensive Nihongo for 1-2 years in Japan. He will also be provided the option to work part-time (maximum of 28 hours / week) to help with his daily expenses, to be able to practice his language skills, be immersed in the Japanese culture, and to train him within a Japanese work environment who is highly renowned as professionals and businessmen.

We are partnered with the best language schools in Japan so the students are guaranteed the best learning experience.
