Career Support

Your career (working life) starts to take shape the moment you begin thinking about it. To acquire a lifestyle that suits you, it is very important to discover your own values. With this in mind, we have a support system in place that starts in the 1st year. The goal of this system is to help students get a holistic picture of employment by seeking the meaning and value of work, learning about the job market for university graduates and the types of skills they need, and developing the personal strengths they can bring to the world of work.

At Ferris, our mission is to nurture "self-reliant women." We therefore aim to help our students walk along a path towards a successful in every way possible.

Since each student walks on a different path, there are various matters to be considered. We attempt to provide each student with personalized and carefully considered support.

We wish to help brighten your past, present, and future!
