〇 About the admission on recommendation

Japan has a style of entrance examination called “admission on recommendation”.
In simple words, this exam is available for students who are referred by NILS to universities and/or vocational schools as excellent students.
There are some conditions and terms in order to determine as a good student, but you will be fine if you study hard for Japanese tests at NILS.

Some school offers lower tuition fees if you get a recommendation.
Keep in mind to follow Japanese regulation and NILS’s rules not to miss your recommendation!


NILS is providing you with twelve preparatory classes like this.
