English Language

Students who enter APU on a Japanese basis focus on English language studies in order to improve English ability. With individuals from around the world gathering at APU, the campus is an ideal environment for students to strengthen their English language skills. Newly enrolled Japanese-basis students complete a placement test, the results of which determines the beginning English language subject.

APU strongly encourages students to use the TOEFL ITP® Test and TOEIC ® Listening and Reading tests held on campus as an opportunity to evaluate one's own English skills. Students may also choose to further develop their language skills by participating in short-term language immersion programs held over the summer break, or semester and year-long study abroad programs. We hope you will take advantage of these programs to realize your English language potential.

For details of English language subjects refer to the Undergraduate Academic Handbook.
