Earning credits while studying abroad in Japan

Each course held at Otemon Gakuin University is worth 2 Japanese credits, with a 45 hour workload per one credit (including 22,5 hours of self study). Students choose 5 courses during the semester plus a mandatory Japanese language course, which does not bear credits.

The language course includes 112,5 hours of study per semester. The total of contact hours in Japanese language lessons and the evaluation ratings will appear on a student’s transcript. In most cases, home universities have awarded credits for the course.

One completed course most often converts to around 3-4 ECTS credits and around 3 US credits.
