Overview of the business

Taking advantage of the agreement with the University Partnership in Victoria, Australia, we aim to improve the international competitiveness of higher education in the Kyoto area and guarantee and improve the quality of education. In order to create a situation where all university students, faculty and staff in the Kyoto area can secure access to international exchange beyond the boundaries of universities, we are developing study abroad programs that utilize credit transfer programs.

Program Introduction

During the 4-week study abroad program, students choose from the English language schools affiliated with four (national) universities in Victoria, Australia, and study at the government-approved "ELICOS" held locally.
Classmates are other international students from all over the world. Excursions are also organised on weekends (additional cost).
Depending on the school, it is possible to participate in a buddy program to interact with local students or a volunteer program to teach Japanese at a local elementary school.

Melbourne, which was voted "the world's most livable city!" for seven consecutive years until 2017, attracts students from all over the world, second only to London, New York, and Paris, and you can feel various foreign cultures. Australia also has a tradition of teaching English to thousands of immigrants and international students from 115 countries and territories around the world each year, and has a global reputation for professional and excellent English education.
