FEATURES AND PRIVILEGES
Those who wish to proceed to Hanazono University degree programs after our Japanese language program are eligible for a special admission option ― the successful candidates will be given priority in the admission process: they are exempted from submitting their Japanese language test scores. In addition, they are exempted from paying the entrance fee of 200,000 yen and from paying 300,000 yen for the second semester tuition.
