Further Education Seminar

Individual consultation meetings are provided with guidance counselors from graduate schools, universities, and vocational schools who can provide information about admission requirements for these schools. Students can directly ask these counselors any questions they have about the admissions programs and content of admissions tests for each university. In addition, previous graduates of YMCA provide information about how to prepare and study for admissions testing as well as the atmosphere at various universities. YMCA counselors put much importance on helping each student determine the best route for active careers in the future.
