This agreement establishes conditions that apply to the Japanese language program (below, “program”) conducted by KAI Japanese Language School (below, “school.”) By consenting to this agreement, a person wishing to attend the Japanese language program (below, “applicant”) shall be considered to have applied to attend courses.
Article 1: Establishment of an agreement concerning course attendance
Once the applicant has understood the details of the program they intend to apply for, determined that those details are suitable, and consented to the content of the enrollment application and the stipulations herein, they may submit an application to the school to attend courses, and the school will consent in turn.
Article 2: Provision of service and payment of fees
The school will provide service suitable to the content selected by the applicant on the application form from the learning curriculum established by the school.

Article 3: Structure of educational guidance
The educational guidance provided by the school will take place within prescribed teaching periods, and as a general rule will consist of multiple students and one instructor, with the exception of individual lessons.

Article 4: Educational guidance start date
The start date of educational guidance is the day that educational guidance begins in a prescribed classroom, and is not the application date.

Notification periods differ for programs other than integrated courses. There is no renewal fee charged for renewing enrollment.

If repayment is made via bank transfer, payment of any transfer fees will be the responsibility of the applicant.
Cancellation rules may differ depending on the program you apply for, your visa status, or other circumstances. For details, please review the Cancellation Policy.
