English Language Education

With individuals from around the world gathering at APU, the campus provides the ideal environment for students to strengthen their English language skills. Newly enrolled Japanese language basis students complete an English proficiency placement test that determines the starting point for their English language studies.

By learning from English textbooks, writing academic reports and making presentations, students prepare themselves to take liberal arts and major education subjects offered in English.

The TOEFL-ITP and TOEIC-IP tests are offered on-campus providing students the opportunity to objectively measure their level of English language proficiency. Students can also choose to further develop their language skills by participating in short-term language immersion programs held over the summer or winter breaks, or semester and year-long study abroad programs.
