Greeting from Principal

Institut Bahasa Teikyo (IBT) is a Japanese Language Preparatory Centre for Studies to Japan that was established in April 1997 at the Japan Club of Kuala Lumpur. It is a member of the Teikyo University Group in Japan. IBT prepares students who intend to further their studies to Japan from Malaysia.

As recognized in the Look East Policy (LEP) by Malaysian government, Malaysia is one of the top countries which have shown strong interest in Japan. In relation to the Japanese government’s “300 thousand international students plan” in progress, we are striving to help every student here who is yearning to study in Japan. The “Pre-U in Malaysia, Degree in Japan” is very unique and superior system to put forward and has progressed rapidly. Outside Japan, IBT is the only Pre-U Centre recognized and approved by the Japanese Education Ministry, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology – MEXT (Monbukagakusho). Students, while still in Malaysia, are able to acquire sufficient knowledge in the Japanese Language and also in other academic subjects such as mathematics, chemistry, physics, social studies, etc.

We would like to create awareness of our existence not only to those who are going to further their studies to Japan but also to those universities and their representatives who are accepting foreign students. Currently in Malaysia, (and in the future, the whole of Southeast Asia) IBT aims to produce excellent personnel academically and build good and peaceful relationship with Japan.
