Special English Program
The Special English Program is open to 1st-year students who have achieved a score of 600 or higher on the TOEIC and consists of intensive courses focused on further developing students' English. The courses include not only language courses, but also regular seminars, lecture courses, etc. that are conducted in English, offering an opportunity to develop advanced, real-life English through practical application. Additionally, after completing the 1-year program (during spring vacation), students have the opportunity for a short-term study abroad in England, which enables the students to advance their practical English skills to an even higher level.
