Staff who speak English, Chinese, Bengali, Hindi, Korean and Mongolian are standing by to assist you at the College. You can contact them anytime, whenever you have a problem.
For international studentsSupport for finding part-time work
A coordinator on campus helps students find and apply for part-time work. After verifying your language skills and interests, the coordinator will propose suitable work; explain the hourly wage, working hours, rules, etc.; give you advice as you prepare your resume and practice for the interview; and explain how to use public transportation to get there. After you start working, the coordinator will follow-up with you and help you make adjustments if necessary.

Japanese law states that "as long as the [work] activity is at a level that does not affect the student's studies," an international student is permitted to be employed part-time after receiving "Permission to Engage in Activity Other Than That Permitted Under the Status of Residence Previously Granted."
(you may apply for the above-mentioned Permission when you enter Japan, or at the Regional Immigration Bureau)
Students with a "Student Visa" are permitted to work no more than 28 hours per week. During official College breaks (Summer Break, Winter Break, Spring Break, etc.), students are permitted to work up to 8 hours per day and up to 40 hours per week.
For international studentsDormitory living
There are two dormitories near the College, "Rupo Kencho Guchi" and "Renaissance 21 Hakozaki." Both are near train/subway stations, are superbly positioned for access to the College, and provide an "at home" yet international atmosphere to students from around the world.
studentsMedical & wellness support: Help with accidents, injury, illness & life's problems
"I had an accident and hurt myself." "I've had a persistent headache for several days." "I think I broke my arm." Etc. When you have a problem, College staff will support you. We even have a support system to deal with language barriers and language-related difficulties.
To prevent accidents, we periodically hold a lecture on "Pedestrian Manners in Japan," and when accidents or mishaps do happen, a notice is sent to all faculty and staff.
A certified counselor visits the College periodically. If you are worried about something or have a problem, feel free to talk with the counselor or tell a College staff member.
* You need not wait for the counselor. Any College faculty or staff member can assist you.
