Boasting 42 years of history as an art junior college, Kyushu Zokei Art College has so far produced approximately 9,700 graduates, who are now very active in a wide variety of fields, such as fine art, manga, crafts, design, and photography.

Kyushu Zokei Art College is one of the largest art junior colleges in Japan. The college is proud of being outstanding not only in terms of the scale, but also in terms of the education quality – excellent instructors, splendid facilities and equipment, and friendly atmosphere created between students and faculty thanks to small class sizes. In addition, compared with a four-year college, the junior college is very favorable in terms of school fees.

Every year, Kyushu Zokei Art College produces graduates who transfer to the third year of a course at a national university or at a four-year art college. For each of those who wish to follow such a path, the college offers advice and instructions. Particularly noteworthy is the transfer to the Faculty of Fine Arts of Kyushu Sangyo University. Since this affiliated university accepts transfer of college students based on recommendation by the college, more than 10 students go on to the university every year.

The college also focuses on support for job hunting. The college invites instructors and holds seminars even for first-year students. Moreover, some of the college faculty members have a career counseling qualification and they provide advice to each of the college students.

Kyushu Zokei Art College is comprised of a single department, the Department of Art and Design. The educational system of the college is organized to allow first-year students to learn the basics of plastic arts from a broad range of perspectives, without deciding their specialized field at the time of their enrolment at the college. Trying a variety of subjects that will interest them, students can gradually narrow down the options for their special field. In the former part of the second year, students select their field from five categories. In the latter of part of the year, they select their major from 13 categories and begin to create their graduation works.

Fukuoka, home to the college, is a lively city where many young artists promote their activities vigorously. Featuring many galleries where students present and exhibit their works, the city is a perfect environment for you to exert yourself to make your dream come true.

Helping students develop theiroverall power as human beings

The two years at the junior college are extremely important for students seeking jobs or admission to KSU and other universities. The college believes that this is why it is essential not only to offer them opportunities to acquire technical knowledge and techniques but also to help them develop their overall capacities as human beings, ensuring that they have confidence and pursue their goals in their future.
Taking advantage of its small-group education, Kyushu Zokei Art College is committed to developing overall power as human beings, under the three main policies of “innovative specialized education with 13 courses under one department,” “comprehensive liberal arts education” and “detailed career education.”
