The Study in Japan Program has been around for decades, yet it could still be confusing when it comes to the requirements and application process.

This Intensive Course & Study in Japan package offered by A to Z Language Centre (Malaysia) is designed to assist you in enrolling into a language school of your choice in Japan, and also allow you to pick-up/improve your Japanese language proficiency (meeting the VISA application requirement), while waiting for your application to be processed.

What's in this Package?

Intensive Course

What is Intensive Course?

This course only focuses on Japanese language and classes are conducted for 3 hours daily (Mondays to Fridays, except on public holidays) at 11:00am – 1:00pm & 2:00pm – 3:00pm.

It takes 10 days (total 30 study hours) to complete a level in the intensive course (compared to 3 – 4 months to complete a level if you join the more common once a week courses).

As the classes are fast-paced, one could achieve JLPT N5 from zero within 3 – 4 months!

In general,

  3. Taken EJU for the required subjects (varies according to the university course you are applying to)

Requirements for Technical School Application

  1. Completed 12 years in primary & secondary education
    (some allow 11 years but prior confirmation with the institution is required)
  2. Passed JLPT N2

No, because you do not fulfill the requirement “completed 12 years of primary & secondary education”.

As such, you are required to complete a college preparatory or pre-U course before you are eligible.

No, you can complete the course in your home country.

Still, if your aim is to get into a Japanese university, we would recommend choosing a pre-U course in Japan as a means of preparation (proficiency in Japanese is prioritized).

  1. Completed a Bachelor’s Degree in institutions acknowledged by the country (where the institution is located)
