GenkiJACS is accredited by the International Association of Language Centres (IALC). IALC is a network of high-quality, independent language schools teaching their native language to international students. The IALC Quality Scheme and Code of Ethics ensure that all IALC schools provide high quality language services. IALC-accredited language schools provide effective language courses and cultural immersion for all ages, needs and interests. Accreditation is a guarantee of quality, as IALC inspects schools regularly. GenkiJACS is only the third Japanese school ever to be accepted by IALC, and one of only two currently maintaining membership.
The Association of Language Travel Organisations (ALTO) was formed at the World Youth & Student Travel Conference (WYSTC) in Miami in 1998, and has grown into an association of approximately 180 members, in over 40 countries. ALTO membership is a symbol of quality. Members are vetted by the larger membership community, examined for financial health, and referred by other ALTO members. In addition, ALTO members adhere to the ALTO Charter, Members’ Guarantees of Quality, and other guidelines issued by the association.
The Centrala studiestödsnämnden approves and sends out Swedish financial aid for studies, which includes both grants and loans to students in Sweden and abroad. GenkiJACS is accredited by the CSN, allowing Swedish students to receive financial support for study with us.
GenkiJACS is recognized by most German state authorities as eligible for up to an extra 10 days of educational leave, for courses of more than 30 hours per week. See our Bildungsurlaub page for details.
GenkiJACS is accredited by multiple universities worldwide, allowing students to receive credit at their university for their study with GenkiJACS. Check our university page for details!
GenkiJACS is a member of Fukuoka's Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
Every year from 2009 to 2013, GenkiJACS has been nominated by popular vote as one of the world's star language schools, as part of Study Travel Magazine’s yearly Star Awards. GenkiJACS was nominated in the World Language Schools category. This means we’re not just one of the best Japanese schools in the world, but one of the best language schools! The nominees are decided based on voting by the language travel industry. Most of the other nominated schools have been operating for 20 years or more, and are in the capital city of their country, so for GenkiJACS to be nominated alongside these schools is an honor for us, and a mark of the high quality education we provide.
Students coming to GenkiJACS through Languagecourse.net have rated us as 4.5 or higher out of 5 on average, “certifying an excellent overall service rating based on the evaluations of former students”, for every year so far. High evaluations by former clients is the best reflection of the high quality of service we provide!
