In order for international students to live a school life with peace of mind and improve their skills, we are focusing on support from before admission. For example, "I want to talk about games and anime," "I want to make friends with international students," "I want to know about school classes," "I want to know about employment," and "I want to hear from seniors." I'm trying to work on it.

Established in 1967, Tokyo Business Academy is a business school with a long history. In addition, there are only 39 schools in Japan, and it is a school that accepts "government scholarship students" selected by the Japanese government and has the trust of the government.
For more than 40 years since 1976, when the number of international students was still small, some graduates claim that their mothers and sons both graduated from Tokyo Business Academy. Up until now, many international students have taken the same classes as Japanese students for two years, have been active in Japanese companies, and continue to study at universities and graduate schools. Some graduates are working at the Japanese Embassy in their home country.
International students who want to succeed and grow in Japan, let's make your dreams come true at Tokyo Business Academy!

Nagoya Visual Arts Academy is a comprehensive entertainment and creative school. From the city of "Nagoya", we will provide the same quality class curriculum, learning and entertainment experience as "Tokyo".
As an entertainment vocational school, what we value most is "connection".
Entertainment will be created in the various departments and courses that our school handles, and the connections between each position. In addition, the diversity of students aiming for each position will grow the entertainment to a higher quality.
Through our curriculum, we are waiting for the challenge of those who know the structure of the industry and have the will to create future entertainment.
