Why Not Study Abroad in Japan?

IBEI works with individual students from overseas and finds placement in Japanese schools for either a short or long term basis. Students are placed with carefully selected schools throughout the country.
The application process normally requires at least 4 months before starting the program. Therefore, prospective students are encouraged to submit the application as early as possible.
Please contact IBEI for further information and application.
