Special Programs for International Students
Intensive Japanese language course is offered at Matsumoto campus. At the other four campuses, international students can take supplementary Japanese classes. Students who study at our partner university can apply for the "Shinshu University Exchange Student Program" organized by Shinshu Unieversity International Center.
Service for International Students
The university has two International Houses to provide accommodations for international students. Most of the new international students are matched up with a regular student called "tutor" to help you get accustomed to the university and life in Japan. Moreover, students will be provided with a variety of opportunities for cultural exchange events with local citizens, etc.
