The KLAS curriculum prepares students for university studies anywhere in the world. Around one quarter of a graduating class goes to non-Japanese universities, and many of those who go to Japanese universities actually continue to study in English. 


To guide them towards making the right choices, the KLAS college guidance department consists of a team of three faculty, with one of them focusing entirely on non-Japanese colleges. Throughout the year, guidance meetings, large and small, are held for students to keep up to date with the latest information and to check that they are on track. Graduates also give presentations, in person or online, about their experience of choosing a college and starting studies in higher education. 


Some non-Japanese universities include KLAS on their European tours, and students get the opportunity to speak to representatives in person. KLAS is also one of a few schools in Europe that hosts the ACT, a standardized test used for college applications in the United States.
