As an ISEP student, you can build your own program by choosing courses from a variety of fields.

Most courses at Toyo are taught in Japanese; however, there are also many courses available in English. Students who have passed N1 or N2 of the JLPT can take courses in Japanese, English, or both. Those who have not passed N1 or N2, can take courses in English and/or enroll in the NEST Program, which is Toyo’s Japanese language and culture program.

Students can take courses in the Faculties of Letters, Economics, Business Administration, Law, Sociology, Global and Regional Studies, and International Tourism Management.
