Work Experience Program


Work 25 hours per week in exchange for free accommodation at a dormitory and three meals on working days (Mon-Fri).

Our “Work Experience Program” supports students with a high command of English and a minimum Japanese level of JLPT N4 or A2 (Level 4). Applicants will be offered the opportunity to work 25 hours per week at a kindergarten or language school in exchange for free accommodation at a dormitory including breakfast, lunch packages (Bento) and dinner on working days as well as free commuting.

Since one would pay the same price for accommodation and food during the first month of our standard program, the Work Experience Program will already pay off after only four weeks! Booking an additional language course is optional but our recommendation would always be to try and learn as much Japanese and as best as possible while working. The shortest period for this program is one month. The “Work Experience Program” is a great help and very convenient for those who would like to get to know the Japanese working environment.
