Background of the business alliance

Colors, operated by USP, has been chosen by many international students as a language school where Japanese and other Asian students can study English inexpensively while also experiencing volunteer activities in the local community.

Among them, we have received many inquiries from students who were attracted by the importance of the South Pacific region and the culture of the Republic of Fiji, and wished to enter USP. However, they had no choice but to give up on the idea of entering USP due to lack of support from Japanese companies in the enrollment process and lack of information on obtaining a student visa.

USP also had a desire to attract Japanese students, but had not been able to contact the appropriate contact point for prospective students, which led to our business partnership.

About Colors

Under the slogans of "English Study Abroad to Update Your Lifestyle" and "Study Abroad You Can Tell Everyone About", students can not only improve their English skills, but also take part in local volunteer activities to experience cultural exchange and new values that they would never experience in Japan, while learning practical English.

As part of the English lessons, PBL (Project Based Learning) problem-solving learning is introduced, where international students think and practice what they can do to contribute to social issues in Fiji, referring to the SDGs framework.

The English curriculum includes one-on-one lessons for beginner to intermediate and advanced students to improve their English communication skills.

Students can choose between the popular homestay option or a fully-equipped flat dormitory.

One of the attractions of this program is that the cost of studying in Fiji is less than half that of Western countries. Fiji is not a gun society and has a low crime rate compared to other countries, so parents can feel safe while studying in Fiji.


From USP staff: Mr. Nagasaki

"Compared to my university, I make friends 7 times faster at USP!"

I was impressed by these words from a Japanese university student who came to USP as an exchange student. This is because this comment clearly expresses how friendly the people of Fiji and other South Pacific countries are.

It is not only because Fijians are friendly that it is easy to forge connections. One of the main reasons is that they listen carefully to the poor English of international students, and it is also easy to understand the English that Fijians speak as a second language.

It has been pointed out that countries in the South Pacific such as Tuvalu and Kiribati may sink in the near future due to global warming.

By studying abroad in a country where climate change is a major challenge that humanity must cooperate with each other to overcome, students will have the opportunity to think about what they can do as a member of society and cultivate an attitude of tackling diverse social issues as if they were their own. Living together with people from other countries that you may not have the opportunity to meet while living in Japan is full of experiences that are different from those of other Japanese people, and this leads to a great deal of self-confidence.
