2021 Preparatory Course started in a hybrid format

From October 1, Kyoto iUP's 2021 preparatory course started in a hybrid format, combining face-to-face and online learning. While most students are still taking classes online, a few students in Japan are studying at the classroom in Yoshida South Campus.

During the six-month preparatory course, Kyoto iUP students attend Japanese language classes and some pre-foundation classes in certain subjects of natural sciences and social sciences. The foundation subjects are taught in English. The curriculum differs from student to student considering their prospective faculty and the results of the placement test. There are 5 levels of Japanese language class from elementary to advanced, and regular and advanced classes for natural science. Students are taking classes according to their current level.

The class period of the preparatory course is 90 minutes and Kyoto iUP students take 6-18 classes a week. In addition to that, preparatory course students join office hour once a week. During the office hour, iUP students can consult with tutors about student life and learning, and there are also cultural activities planned by tutors and students. It must be tough until they get used to such busy schedule, but all students are working hard with the full support of well-experienced faculty and tutors.

Regular face-to-face classes have resumed at the university, and the campus is regaining its vitality. We hope that all Kyoto iUP preparatory course students will come to Kyoto and study together as soon as possible!
