I would like to know how to study Japanese in KOBE YMCA College.

I would like to know how to apply from abroad.

If you live abroad, you need to obtain "College Student visa". If you have a contact person in Japan, you can apply through that person. If you have no contact person, it is convenient to apply through "Study Abroad Center" in your country.  When you are adult (20 years and older), can also apply for our school directly.

I live in Japan now, but I can't understand Japanese well.

If you live in Japan, you can enroll with your current visa.  You need to take a Japanese level check test before enrollment.  (If you have a tourist visa, please contact us)
Spring course of 2022: Application Acceptance from overseas will be "First of August - the 20th of November"
