GRADUATE SCHOOL COURSE
This course is designed for students who aim to enter graduate school. In addition to a high level of Japanese language proficiency, the ability to read, think, analyze, and express oneself objectively and critically is required for admission to graduate schools in Japan. At TCJ, students will learn the four skills of reading, listening, speaking, and writing in a well-balanced manner, while at the same time using TCJ’s unique methods to improve their Japanese communication skills and social skills to prepare them for post-graduate study. We support students in formulating an application schedule, helping them to choose a graduate school that suits them best, providing guidance in writing a research plan, contacting professors in their laboratories, and preparing for entrance interviews. Students from TCJ’s graduate courses have been accepted into many top national and private graduate schools, including many fine arts schools.
