For international students aiming to be admitted to higher education institutions in Japan that are not taught in English, many Japanese language institutes offer preparation courses for JLPT, EJU (including mathematics, science, and Japan and the World), and university admission exams.

A degree will not be awarded upon completion of a language school program. However, the certification of completion of the language school or Japanese language proficiency test results for the N1 or N2 levels will be helpful in your future for getting jobs and going on to other schools.
