International Exchange - International Exchange

There are over a thousand international students from thirty-one different countries and regions studying at Takushoku University, and the university has been actively recruiting international students for more than seven decades. Its fifty years of experience teaching international students Japanese and comprehensive support system help make the lives of international students more comfortable.

To support international students, the university has implemented its own scholarship program, built international student dormitories, and prepared an environment that enables international students to focus on their studies. The university has also established a support system to help international students deal with unfamiliar aspects of Japanese life and established a training program to help them understand Japan better. The university also provides various types of guidance to help these students plan their careers after graduation, and specialized counselors for international students are available to address their concerns.

International Exchange and Foreign Students Center

With the aim of training students to be global individuals, the International Exchange and Foreign Students Center engages in campus-wide coordination of international exchanges and the education and support of international students.

Friendship and Support Association for Students Enrolled in the Intensive Japanese Language Program for Overseas Students

The association provides various forms of support at the initiative of Japanese students for students who are enrolled in the Intensive Japanese Language Program for Overseas Students with the objective of advancing to a Japanese undergraduate or graduate program. The association’s main activities include support activities during the educational trips and homeroom class of the Intensive Japanese Language Program for Overseas Students—held once a week on the Bunkyo Campus—which are designed to help international students become more familiar with Japanese culture, university life and the Japanese language. The students who support international students as members of the association gain a more international perspective through their interactions with students from around the world.

Educational Trips and Hands-on Learning for International Students

Educational Trips and Hands-on Learning for International Students

The university organizes a one-night, two-day educational trip (during the first semester) and a hands-on learning experience (during the second semester) for first- and second-year international students. These activities are designed to help international students live fulfilling student lives in Japan by giving them opportunities to understand Japan more broadly through directly experiencing elements of Japanese history and traditional culture. Because these events give international students opportunities to interact with each other as well as with teachers and Japanese students, many of them choose to participate.
