Courses

Standard Study Abroad Course

Designed to be covered over the course of a full 2 years, this program is designed to take learners from beginner through to "university acceptance" level Japanese and beyond. That being said, you can choose to enroll for just 6 months if the full time commitment is too long.

One of the most outstanding things about the Study Abroad Course at ARC Academy is the field trips and outings. There are many chances to get outside the school and take in the culture of Japan while also learning real Japanese with context!

The course curriculum is meant to be challenging, while not being overwhelming. You can expect some homework and out-of-class study time, but you should still have plenty of free time to spend during evenings and weekends to either work, socialize, or explore Japan.

Fees are the same at each campus, so no need to choose based on price!
