Our Six-Point Educational System
At the Jikei COM Group, we have a six-point industry-collaborative educational system.
Industry-Collaborative Educational System
We receive support from many companies and creators in the industry. We begin with a foundation of input in the form of currently active instructors and corporate projects. This helps us to create a curriculum that will train students to be effective assets in the workplace. From their first year, students will work on many practical assignments. In their graduation year, they will participate in work experience and internships with related companies. Learning professional careers in the professional workplaces from professionals. That is our Industry-Collaborative Educational System.
Industry-collaborative projects are conducted all year round, with students receiving assignments and requests from companies in related industries. It is a program unique to the Jikei COM Group and is highly regarded by the industry. Students have a valuable opportunity to learn about professional careers by gaining work experience in the workplace, whilst enrolled at the school. By polishing their practical skills and exploring their imaginations, students will become talented professionals that can be immediately effective in their chosen field.

Special Industry Seminars
These seminars feature professionals at the top of their fields. The content of each lecture is of an extremely high level (higher than the regular curriculum), and has been highly evaluated by peers in its respective industry. The goal upon completion of the seminar is to possess professional level abilities and aim for a high-quality career or debut.
Fujimura Car Design Seminar
Mr. Fujimura worked on exterior design for the Civic and numerous other car models at Honda R&D and is currently the president of Epsilon Co. Ltd.. He will personally instruct students in the creation of products that conform to the design processes and requirements for corporate projects.
Internship (Work Experience)
In their final year, all students who wish to be employed will participate in a 2-4 week internship in the field of their choice as part of the Industry-Collaborative Curriculum. Many students receive an early job offer, and this is reflected in our high rate of graduate employment.
Double Major Curriculum System
We have prepared a curriculum that allows each student to study according to their goals and desired career.Students are also able to take classes at other majors, broadening their range of skills.
Overseas Study Programs
Students experience the world's finest training in creative arts, nature, music, show business, and film at our affiliated schools overseas. Studying overseas helps students refine sensibilities in "specialized skills" and "international awareness." By experiencing various things outside Japan, students can broaden their perspectives in countries such as U.S., Italy, Australia, and France.
Employment & Debut System
We support students from the time of their enrollment by giving them employment advice, holding corporate information sessions and exhibitions, and assisting students to get preliminary job offers. As students in the music and manga courses will strive to make their professional debut, we hold auditions at the schools and ask editors from many well-known publishers to evaluate students' work in order to advise them individually on how to make their debut.
