Q: I’ve already applied but what happens if I can’t travel to Japan due to the impact of the virus in my country?

Q: What happens if the Japanese Language School I apply to cancels their lessons?
A: All of our partners ensure that if they close for any period of time due to the pandemic they will offer online or back up lessons to cover any timeframe of the closure.
We always keep all of our students updated in case of changes that affect them due to the evolving nature of the pandemic situation.In the unlikely event that a school decides to cancel a whole term without any option to study at all, they will either refund your fees or move them to another term of your choosing.
