Interviews with international students studying at a
Sanko Gakuen vocational college
I am refining my Japanese and expertise to follow my dream of becoming a wedding planner in Japan.
I became interested in studying in Japan after listening to the stories about Japan from my older sister who lived here for 8 years. A lot of special terminology is used in class but I make a habit of looking up words I don’t know. I especially like classes on makeup, flowers and fashion etc.
Dong Siyu - China
All of my concerns about studying overseas were resolved during trial classes. I was inspired by the ambience of Shibuya which heightened my interest in fashion.
There are no vocational colleges dedicated to the beauty industry in Taiwan so I made the decision to study overseas to study in this field in Japan. I looked at several schools but chose Sanko due to the close relationship enjoyed by teachers and students that I saw during trial classes.
Hou Zhifen - Taiwan
I decided to study overseas to improve my skills and knowledge in beauty therapy. The teachers and other students are friendly, making it easy to ask about things I don’t understand.
I studied beauty therapy in Korea but enrolled in the Tokyo Beauty Art Vocational College to further improve my skills. I am particularly enjoying the beauty therapy classes and hope to open my own beauty salon in Korea in the future.
Lee Hyunchae - Korea
Following graduation I hope to follow my dream to become a pastry chef. With encouragement from the teaching staff and my friends I was able to overcome the language barrier.
I had worked part-time making desserts and that formed the trigger to choosing this school. The language barrier was a concern for me in finding work in Japan and I almost gave up but was able to find employment with the company I wanted thanks to the encouragement from my teachers and friends.
