From April 2015, Ryukoku University launched the Japanese Experience Program in Kyoto (JEP Kyoto), a program specially designed for incoming exchange students. Situation-based Japanese language classes, based on topic syllabi, are offered to accommodate exchange students from the beginner to advanced levels. Participants may choose from a variety of elective courses taught in either Japanese or English. Furthermore, exchange students may register for classes in Ryukoku University's Faculties and Graduate Schools.
JEP-E [English Study Course within JEP Kyoto]
From Fall 2017, in order that our programs may be offered to an even greater number of students, we established the JEP-E study course within the JEP Kyoto Program. JEP-E, recommended for those who have no Japanese language study background, offers classes taught all in English, as well as elementary Japanese language classes. Those who opt to take classes in the JEP-E study course may take JEP-E classes and choose from a designated selection of available undergraduate/graduate subjects.
Even if a student chooses to enroll in JEP Kyoto (Japanese) classes, the ability to do so will ultimately be determined by a Japanese language placement test administered during the Orientation period. It may be deemed necessary for students to enroll in the JEP-E study course instead.
