MasterStudy period: 2-3 years

To put it simply, graduate school, which is one of the career paths after graduating from university, is to apply the knowledge and theory learned at university to carry out further academic research.
The image of a graduate school is that aims to be a university professor or researcher, but it is said that it is advantageous to go on to graduate school and acquire specialized knowledge and skills, especially in the case of science.

UniversityStudy period: 4years

Universities are educational institutions that provide education to acquire a wide range of education while studying academic and theoretical studies.
In the liberal arts course, which is the basis of learning at the university, it is possible to learn not only the academics related to the faculty / department that you entered, but also the basic knowledge of various academics. If you are in a university with a system for taking courses in other faculties, you may be able to study non-specialized disciplines above the introductory level.
Unlike up to high school, one of the characteristics of the university is that you can create your own timetable according to your interests. Although there are some restrictions depending on the required courses (courses that must be taken), you can freely decide the schedule of student life according to your purpose and lifestyle .
There are many activities that require independence and cooperation, such as seminar activities, research activities, and club activities, and you can acquire basic skills to be a contributing member of society.

4-year university transfer---

Transfers include 2nd year transfer, 3rd year transfer, and 4th year transfer, but most are 3rd year transfer. For international students, some graduate from a junior college (2 or 3 years of enrollment) overseas,
and many students aim to transfer to a Japanese university in the third year. When they graduate in the fourth year, they are given a graduation qualification from a four-year university, which is advantageous for employment in Japan, so many students want to transfer in to a university.

Junior collegeStudy period: 2-3 years

Compared to university, there is more training time, and you will learn knowledge and skills through practical training using a hand-on approach as well as studying at your desk, so you will be able to acquire the ability to work immediately after graduation.
A junior college that combines the good points of a university and a vocational school may be a perfect fit for those who want to acquire qualifications in a short-term concentration and utilize those qualifications as soon as they graduate.

Vocational schoolStudy period: 2-3 years

A vocational school is a &vocational school specialized course& and is a higher education institution that mainly provides vocational education.
Departments and curriculums are prepared to acquire the knowledge, skills, and qualifications required for a specific profession, and after graduation, profession selection is made based on what has been learned.
The biggest feature of a vocational school is the large amount of training. In order to acquire the ability to work immediately after graduation, "learning with the body" is emphasized. At a vocational school that has a lot of training time, it is forbidden to be absent, late or leave early. If you take a day off, you will be far behind other students.

To Teacher
It was tough when incorporating material into classes and assignments, but it was very easy at other times. I will inevitably compare the class of the teacher in charge with the substitute teacher. It was tough, but after I left school, I realized how important it was. The teacher gave a realistic opinion about the course. Thank you for clearly stating, &This course is impossible at your current level.& This enabled me to realistically change my goals to something more achievable and I am excited to explore my options. The teacher taught me a lot every day. I want to absorb a lot of important things as a human being and become a good adult.
Thanks to the teacher, I was able to study hard for a year and get a job. thank you very much&.

If I hadn't enrolled in Daiwa Academy, I wouldn't have been so accustomed to living alone in Japan. When I first entered the university, they helped me with everything from opening a bank account to introducing a part-time job. And in the university entrance examination, the teacher in charge taught bowing, answering, pronunciation of words, etc. every day until the day before the interview, and thanks to the teacher, I was able to pass the university of my choice. I am really grateful.

However, the teacher at Daiwa Academy was very kind and helped me. He also taught me about Japanese customs and rules, and how to study Japanese. I made a lot of friends, experienced a part-time job for the first time, and made a lot of fun memories.

While attending the Daiwa Academy, I was taught languages and Japanese culture by my teachers, and was also given me advice on future things such as going on to higher education and getting a job. Also, the grades of the subjects studied at Daiwa Academy can be exchanged for Hue Foreign Language University credits, and since I am actually studying in Japan, I became more interested than when I was in Vietnam. My grades were also good. With good grades, I graduated from both Daiwa Academy and a university in Vietnam.
Thanks to the teachers, I will do my best to the end without giving up.

It is no exaggeration to say that Daiwa Academy is one of the best Japanese language schools in Osaka. I am talking about the kindness and enthusiasm of Daiwa Academy teachers and staff.

Looking back, this year has been a very valuable year of my life.
A year ago, I just wanted to go to live in Japan, but now I want to study specialized knowledge at a Japanese university.
Studying abroad at Daiwa Academy was a wonderful experience that had a great impact on all aspects of my thinking, lifestyle, and future way of life.
In particular, for the first time in this study abroad program, I lived alone, apart from the kind parents I always lived with. At first, I was completely unfamiliar with living in Japan and interacting with Japanese people, but thanks to the teachers at Daiwa Academy, I was able to understand Japanese life culture and my Japanese became better and better. .. Compared to the beginning, I was able to improve my Japanese ability more than I imagined.
I'm really thankful to you!

I came to Daiwa Academy when I was in my fourth year of college. For the first six months, I wasn't sure about my daily life or going on to graduate school, but with the guidance and support of my teachers, I gradually got used to life in Japan and decided on the major I wanted to study.
I think the most important thing in preparing for the exam is the research plan and expertise. At first, I was quite worried about what to write, but my homeroom teacher gave me various advice and I was able to create a research plan. I think it is important to learn the expertise not sure if right word independently. Daiwa Academy has prepared a self-study room, so I used it a lot before the exam. Finally, one piece of advice for juniors. Preparing for the exam can be difficult, so it's important to relax moderately and maintain a good mental state.

If you are looking for a school that offers excellent standards of education, Daiwa Academy is the answer. I think it is a good school that provides the services needed by foreign students who want to learn Japanese. After studying at Daiwa Academy for a year, I learned a lot of useful knowledge in various aspects. The teachers don't just teach Japanese, the deeper you learn, the more you love Japan and Japanese.

Going to Osaka Kyoiku University

I enrolled in Daiwa Academy in October 2019 and have already studied at Daiwa for a year and a half. For a year and a half at Daiwa, not only did I study Japanese at school, but the teachers also helped me a lot in terms of life in Japan. In terms of study, there are not only courses related to the Examination for Japanese University Admission for International Students, but also courses related to the Japanese Language Proficiency Test. Thanks to that, I was able to get high scores on both the EJU and the N1 exam, and finally passed the Osaka Kyoiku University.

It's been a year and a half since I came to Japan. One’s thinking changes, perspectives change, sensibilities change, and the stimuli received from the surroundings are innumerable. I experienced loneliness, sadness, and feelings of wanting to give up. I was almost frustrated many times, but as a result of continuing to do my best without giving up my dreams, I was able to pass Kyoto University, which I had always wanted to enter.
Even in difficult times now, "do your best without giving up", is a motto that I believe can be applied to any situation. Please do your best until you are satisfied with it.
Of course, don't forget to relax!!
