Japanese Language Proficiency Test

We are an examination centre for the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT).

The JLPT is an internationally recognised qualification for non-native speakers of Japanese and we represent the Japan Foundation in offering it.

JLPT certification offers various advantages. In Japan, it is taken into consideration for preferential immigration treatment as well as an eligibility for various national exams. Outside Japan, it is widely used as school credits, graduation certification, job screening and promotion, as well as for a variety of national qualifications.

The JLPT 2023 guide details further general information as well as the linguistic competence required for each level and how your test will be scored.
