Department of Business Administration,

I want to build up my knowledge of business administration and accounting so I can do business on the international scene.

I was inspired to study abroad by my father, who works in countries all over the world. Currently I’m studying the basics of business management, such as micro- and macroeconomics and management strategy. There are a lot of international students on campus here and I’ve come to understand a great deal about other cultures from interacting with them. During my enrollment here, I will learn about business administration and gain an international perspective to work in an international setting in the future.

Department of Law,

I’m learning the basics of law so I can be admitted to graduate school.

I decided that I wanted to be an international lawyer, partly through the influence of the parents of a childhood friend who were both teaching law. To fulfill that dream, I joined the Department of Law. One of the attractions of Teikyo University is that they hold mock court sessions on campus, so we can learn by experience what arguing a case in court is like. I’ve set my sights on getting admitted to graduate school, so I’m currently studying the basics of criminal, civil and international law and so on.

Department of Japanese Cultures,

I’m having fun because I get to study my favorite fields, such as Japanese culture and literature.

Reading Japanese novels in translation led me to start studying Japanese on my own. I soon resolved to go to Japan to study language and literature in earnest. Japan’s traditional culture and literature are hard to understand, but I’m glad I can study it as a specialty. Campus life is fun, too. After class, I get together with my fellow band members for band practice.

English Course, Department of Language Studies,

Having native speakers as instructors really helps me to brush up my basic skills in English.

I enrolled in the Department of Language Studies because I knew that proficiency in languages would enable me to assist foreign tourists. One attractive feature of this department is that class sizes are small, so I can concentrate on my studies. In “speaking and listening,” the instructors, who are native speakers, check our grammar and pronunciation in detail, so I can feel my English proficiency improving.

Department of Education and Culture,

I want to become a Japanese-language teacher. I’m working hard to make that dream come true.

I decided to study abroad so that I could become a Japanese-language teacher capable of teaching at an advanced level. The main attraction of the Department of Education and Culture for me is that I can acquire the knowledge I’ll need to be a teacher, such as educational theory. My English classes are really interesting—in addition to reading, writing and speaking, I learn about history and literature. While I’m enrolled here I want to study the things that make Japanese unique, such as giongo, onomatopoeic words, so I can truly master the Japanese language.

Department of Biosciences,

It’s a great learning environment—I can study living things with a wide scope.

I decided to come to Japan and study at Teikyo University on the recommendation of a teacher at the Japanese school I attended in my home country. At university I’m studying the workings of cells, how genes work and so on. When the instructor says something in Japanese that I can’t understand, he switches to English to explain it for me, so I don’t worry about missing information. I’m considering applying for graduate school because I want to study genetic modification in greater detail.

Division of Integrated Science and Engineering,

A well-equipped and furnished campus naturally inspires the desire to learn.

I had studied polymers at university in China and wanted to extend those studies to a deeper level. I decided to apply to graduate school at Teikyo University when I learned about the state-of-the-art facilities and equipment here. These days I’m interested in airplane-engine materials, so I’m studying with a professor who is doing research in that field. In the future I want to be a research scientist at a Japanese company, in the field I’m majoring in now.

Everytime I learn something new in Japanese, I feel a sense of joy and fascination.

I started studying Japanese on my own as I love Japanese anime. I enrolled in this Course to study Japanese more deeply. My teachers are helpful and clear, and my classmates share my passion for learning. As we support each other in studying hard, I can feel my skills growing. A lot of extracurricular lessons, such as brewery tours and tea ceremonies, make me communicate with friends of many nationalities.

Department of Contemporary Business,

I want to become someone who can take an active role on the world stage, with a deep understanding of the international situation.

I enrolled in the Department of Contemporary Business after I studied Japanese in my home country because I wanted to study widely about economics and business. The Seminar on Current Issues is a fascinating class, because I get to study about real global issues. In the future I want to use the things I’ve learned at Teikyo University to play an active role on the world stage, in fields such as opening new markets and conducting market surveys.
