The program was founded in 1999 for international students to prepare for study at Kurume University (undergraduate, graduate, transfer) with appropriate Japanese language skills. It focuses especially on improving speaking and writing abilities so as to study at the undergraduate or graduate level, and also offers basic knowledge of Japanese culture and society. Students can also participate in international exchange classes with Japanese undergraduate students and special cultural tours during the program.

Japanese language classes are divided into Pre-intermediate, Intermediate, and Advanced levels. A Beginners English class is also offered. The program has two courses: One-year course and 18-month course. Students will be given preferential treatment with a recommendation and granted exemption of the entrance fee when entering the faculty or graduate school of Kurume University.

 The International Center

The International Center was opened on January 1,2002. The direct objectives of the Center are: (1) to expand academic exchange between Kurume University and universities abroad, and (2) to provide academic support and general assistance for students who wish to study abroad and for international students studying at Kurume University. The indirect objective of the Center is to help build a wealth of international experience for the entire university through domestic and international exchange.

Based on an agreement with 28 foreign universities, the Center provides study abroad programs and short-term language study programs for the students of the university. On the other hand, international students in the undergraduate, graduate, and Intensive Japanese Course have greatly increased. Because of this increase, a wide range of duties, such as Japanese language education, Japanese cultural study tours, speech contests, scholarship application, grassroots exchange, and foreign student club support, have become and will continue to be important for the International Center.
