    Ashley, Singapore (Japan Studies)

    Testimonial from Ashley, Singapore (Japan Studies), student at International College of Liberal Arts (iCLA) at Yamanashi Gakuin University

    I chose iCLA for its status as a Liberal Arts college in Japan with English-taught classes, the low student-to-faculty ratio, and the opportunity to learn Japanese language, culture, and history. I have learned so much about Japanese culture, language, history, and economy that it overtakes my knowledge of my home country! I’m excited to see where this interest leads me in the future.
