Doshisha University Center for Japanese Language and Culture (CJLC) was established to provide all international students with effective Japanese language education and Japanese studies.

CJLC acts to support Doshisha’s international education and research by creating and providing well-designed and enriching classes in Japanese language and culture. At the same time, in order to introduce Japanese language and culture to the world, the center offers various courses to domestic students who intend to engage in international exchange activities organized by Doshisha University. CJLC provides support for international students who wish to study at the centers of Doshisha’s 4 overseas partner universities, each of which has a base for Japanese language and culture studies at Doshisha University.

CJLC has been accredited by the Japanese government as a "Designated Japanese-Language Training Institution" (institution for preliminary Japanese language training) that provides six-month intensive Japanese language training to the Japanese Government Scholarship recipients (graduate school level Research Students recommended by the Japanese embassy), whose initial Japanese skills were deemed insufficient by their university, before they begin their advanced education.
