- Student support
KLA aims to be Japan’s safest and most secure Japanese language school. To that end, we have established a dedicated team to prepare our own manual of safety measures. At KLA, you can enjoy your life as an international student with peace of mind.
At KLA, we take a variety of measures to ensure the safety of students in the event of a disaster (such as an earthquake, fire or typhoon), including regular assessment of available information, carrying out disaster drills and maintaining an emergency contact system. We hold a disaster drill each year.
Maintenance of the school buildings and environment
To ensure the safety of students’ learning environment, in addition to enhancing the security of the school’s facilities, we carry out regular safety inspections to confirm there are no dangerous areas.
Other safety measures
To prevent incidents, we keep household medicines on stock for unwell students, and our faculty receive first-aid training in order to be able to respond to emergency situations.
Support for entering university or finding work
KLA, with its motto of “Realizing the Dreams of International Students,” makes full use of the strength of the KLA schools across Japan to support each student on the path they wish to pursue, whether that be going on to tertiary education or finding work.
We are developing our own database system based on the combined information gathering abilities of each school in our nationwide group. This system will allow us to offer the ideal path for each student seeking to advance to university, matched to their desires and level. Our experienced instructors use an abundance of entrance examination information to provide counseling to guide each student in fulfilling their aspirations. We have partnerships with universities and vocational schools all over Japan, and have secured a large quota of recommendation with them.
For international students who wish to find employment, we provide guidance on business manners and how to write a resume, as well as mock interviews and individual counseling. We have a large network of partnerships with businesses, and many of our graduates are successfully employed in Japanese companies.
Academic advancement information sessions
Professors and alums are invited to offer descriptions of their respective institutions
Academic advancement and learning plans are customized to each student’s skills and progress.
Mock interview training
Students hone their skills to appropriately handle situations by repeatedly practicing interviewing techniques.
Prepation for EJU/ Guidance for graduate school
We also offer classes to prepare for the EJU examinations which are necessary for entrance for further education institutions. For students wanting to go to graduate schools, we provide detailed guidance on Japanese procedures, research planning, methods for making contact.
International students may work a part-time job for up to 28 hours a week if they obtain “Permission to Engage in Activity Other Than That Permitted Under the Status of Residence Previously Granted.” We will help students who wish to work part-time find the right job for them.
Life in Japan
Free medical check-ups and insurance
At KLA, the health of international students is our number one priority. We provide regular medical check-ups free of charge, with the school bearing any expenses. We also obtain insurance for international students just in case you fall ill or get injured. You can enjoy your school life with peace of mind.
We provide a variety of types of living accommodations to meet each student’s needs for studying abroad with peace of mind, including our company’s own dormitories and affiliated dormitories.
The specifics vary between schools. Please check the page of each school for detailed information.
