If you’re not ready to commit long term but still want to experience life in Japan, a short-term course is the right choice. Since courses last three months or less, you can study on a tourist visa during your school or university break, or as part of a productive vacation!
Whether you learn best through serious, intensive study or prefer a more informal environment, we can match you with a school that will offer the ideal study environment for you. Our GaijinPot Study Coordinators know each of the schools inside and out and are well-equipped to provide you with a program that fits your learning preferences, Japanese level and future study goals.
We provide full support to help you get started in your new school. If you need help with finding accommodation, we can help with that too!
Have fun and make new friends by joining our student orientation events held four times a year. The events are a great chance to learn just how to make the most of your time in Japan, make new friends and meet our GaijinPot Study Coordinators in real life. We’ll also give you a bag full of Japan goodies as an extra welcome gesture.
Most schools allow short-term students to start anytime but if you are an absolute beginner you will need to enroll at the start of the term.
There are four terms throughout the year:
January, April, July, October
