Always being there for the students to lend aid in finding what they truly wish to achieve
Guiding students to find their ideal job and pursue a career
The Career Center aims to help every student establish his or her life goals during the four years of study at the University. Students develop an ability to become independent, so they can successfully carry out their goals. Freshmen participate in the self identity program, which clarifies their four-year educational plan and future goals; sophomores participate in the Academic and Career Selection program, which helps them select their ideal academic or career route; and juniors participate in the Preparation for Academic and Career Activities program where they decide on what is best for them.
The Career Center also provides private counseling by a career advisor; an internship program in which students experience working in the real world while still in school; a "career information reference system" where students can search for job information or information on company seminars using their home computer; and Network Campus Tokyo, through which students can search for jobs in metropolitan areas.
Student Counseling Center
Addressing the concerns that students may have during their university life, this is a place where students can have a good talk with counselors : a counseling center exclusively for students.
Students may have worries about communicating with others, tuition, the future, health or family problems. To address the various problems students may have during their university life, Konan University has established the Student Counseling Center. The Center is located in Building 18, and a counselor (clinical psychologist) is always stationed there. Not only do students receive advice from counselors, but they can consult with a psychiatrist as well. Consulting via telephone or letters is accepted as well, and everything is kept strictly confidential.
The Salon Room, where books and periodicals can be found, is always open as a resting place, and thus has become a place where students gather to find solace and relaxation. Students are given the opportunity to take psychological tests, participate in group activities, and attend public lectures that are held on a regular basis.
