Entry Requirements


For all of our programs, students need to have a high level of motivation and aptitude.

The minimum entry requirements are slightly different for each program, but the following guidelines apply.

1) Academic Background: With the exception of the Summer Program for High School Students, applicants are required to have completed some undergraduate and or postgraduate studies.

2) Language Background: With the exception of the JLPT Preparation Course, no prior knowledge of Japanese is required.

3) Documentation where required: All students must supply accurate information in the educational background section of the admissions application form and be prepared to submit supporting documentation if requested. If you are applying for a student visa, then you must be able to prove that you have completed a minimum of 12 years of full-time education.

4) Minimum Age Requirement: With the exception of the Summer Program for High School Students, ALC requires that you be at least 18 years old at the time of commencement.

5) Guarantors: Citizens of certain countries will need to find guarantors.
