Diploma (Senmonshi) Awarded at the Time of Graduation

A Diploma (Senmonshi) certifies having acquired high technology know-how and skills from a "Professional Training College" in Japan.
With this document, you can work in Japan soon after graduating. Even if you return home once, to work in Japan is still possible with the proper status of residence, such as in "international business knowledge and Humanities." In addition, if a job cannot be found after graduating, up to a year stay in Japan for the purpose of job hunting is allowed.

Internship Program

Internship is to experience "practical training" at the workplace of Japanese companies while in school.
By doing internship that applies skills learned in school, students can experience firsthand the actual structure of a given industry and a real business field.
In addition, being able to make a positive impression with companies for later job-hunting purposes is an incentive to join the internship program.

Acquiring the Japanese-language ability for getting a job at a Japanese company

Students learn the three skills of "pronunciation," "interactive ability" and "document creation," as well as acquire a "communication ability" required in business situations in Japan.
Besides learning difficult Japanese expressions, there is a wide range of Japanese to acquire, from "communicative Japanese" to "beautiful Japanese."

Pronunciation Training

Correction of pronunciation is the first step in developing Japanese-language communication. The wrong pronunciation may lead to misunderstandings. Through repetition during CBC training, the correct pronunciation is acquired.

Document Writing Skills

In practice, you need to write business letters and reports in Japanese on a daily basis. Now, Japanese companies require of foreign employees the ability to create these documents. Experienced instructors teach a method for constructing a Japanese document.
