This program allows exchange students to stay at ordinary homes while studying at Hokusei Gakuen University (for six months or a year).
Living with a family in Japan will provide them an opportunity to learn about life in Japan and enrich their Japanese language skills.
There is also a short homestay program for around three days. (It may be difficult to match all exchange students with host families due to the number of students who request a homestay.)
As for the standard homestay program, it costs 350,000 yen (including meal expenses, commuting expenses, and program fee). The short homestay program is offered for free (though expenses for travel to and from the host family’s home must be borne by the student).
