Japanese Training for Advanced Studies (JTAS) at Ito Campus
At the International Student Center, we provide a Japanese Training for Advanced Studies (JTAS) lasting approximately 6 months. Although the course targets are research students under the Japanese government (MEXT) scholarship program from Kyushu University and the Northern Kyushu area who are intending to enter the Graduate School, all foreign students enrolled at Kyushu University are able to attend when there are vacancies for applicants.
The aims of the program are to acquire basic Japanese skills and an understanding Japanese culture and society.
This program is suitable for students who would like to focus on learning Japanese for the first 6 months or so and then concentrate on research at the Graduate School.
