Reliable Instructors as Advisors

We have counseling room.

Students studying abroad for the first time feel great anxiety. At TIJ Tokyo Institute of Japanese, the class teacher as well as the department staff in charge of academic affairs, counseling for higher education, students affairs and administrative affairs cooperate to maintain a system in which teachers can closely look after each student.

In a homey atmosphere, student and instructor communicate with each other at anytime in addition to interviews conducted every term. Counseling is warmly provided on matters such as part-time job-related troubles and worries as well as studies and career choices.

Unexpected incidents occur while foreign students are living in Japan. Students may become ill, be involved in an accident, or lose their wallets. The instructors are as reliable as the mothers of the students in their home countries. They will always watch over students and help them solve problems so that they can live safely in Japan.

Cooperation with parents/guardians

Regarding other daily life situations, etc., TIJ contacts the parents/guardians and cooperate to support the students.
