The Gateway Program offers intensive Japanese language courses from beginner to intermediate level. APU’s multicultural environment, which cannot be found elsewhere in Japan, provides a friendly and safe environment for students who do not have any background in Japanese. You will not only expand your knowledge of Japanese and Asia Pacific cultures, but also deepen your intercultural understanding and cross-cultural communication skills by studying alongside students from over 90 countries and regions.
The city of Beppu is very welcoming to international students and provides an alternative experience to one found in major cities. Students are encouraged to go out into the local community and put their new language skills to use and learn a living language.
