It is highly recommended that applicants will have completed AP/JP3000 6.0 or AP/JP4000 6.0 with good standing not only in Japanese but also in GPA [B or above is required]. Applicants must pass the required test and/or interview, and be recommended by the Selection Committee [one or two students per institution per year]. This is a very good opportunity to put your knowledge to practice. We receive a few exchange students from each university as well.
Students can apply for an exchange program without any prior knowledge of Japanese or with basic knowledge, focusing on language learning and taking courses in English. Please contact York International for further information.
