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.

Corporate Projects

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.

Internship (Work Experience)

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.
