Exchange Student

International Exchange program

[A] Introduction

Hokkaido University of Education International Exchange Agreement commenced in 1988.
Developing together with the friendship courses of each of the 5 regional campuses 
(Sapporo, Asahikawa, Kushiro, Hakodate, and Iwamizawa), it currently oversees research and student exchange between 36 Universities in 14 countries and regions.
We aim an exchange student course that recognize the importance of the connections between student education, training and curriculum, and which incorporates the best elements of each region, by offering academic major courses based on the regional characteristics of each campus. We also offer a six-month intensive Japanese language program for students who do not meet our language standards.
It is our sincere wish that through these courses, we can contribute to student education and research activities for both our university and partner institutions participating in these exchange agreements.
