main textbooks we are using


EJU is scheduled on Jun and Nov. 98% (80/82) of national university and 50% (289/581) of private university are evaluating the basic academic ability of applicants using EJU score. In case of EJU on Jun 2015, the applicants number in Japan was over 18000. The admission exam of private university usually begins from the autumn, therefore 1st EJU on Jun is very important.


Our basic objective is to get good EJU score in the second year. With regard to national universities, score of 70 percent at least would be needed.
Always we should keep in mind. . . the daily learning is for the EJU.

Academic Counseling

From July of 2nd year, we conduct the personal guidance regarding the selection of university by referring EJU score and previous successful candidates score.

Optional Course

Mathematics lesson is conducted maximum 5 hours per a week through the year. Before 2 months from the EJU, intensive lessons of math and other subjects are also started.

Refer to EJU Mathematics Syllabus

Basic Principles


Accelerating the number of successful applicants

Our students enter into the universities all around Japan, from Hokkaido in the north to Okinawa in the south. Each university has each tradition, so we are also considering whether the university can be matched with students' expectations.

Best learning class for each student

Level check test is done every 3 months. Depending on the score of the test, attending class might be changed.

Counseling is one of our important missions

UIEC is the first educational facility for students who continue to study in Japan. We have three academic advisors, their nationalities are Japan, China and Morocco. Although students might be puzzled sometimes by cultural differences, our advisors are able to resolve their issues.
