The new international students for the spring semester of 2017 have arrived on campus! We are glad to welcome 23 students from seven universities and colleges in five countries. In addition to taking intensive Japanese language classes, the students can also take a variety of classes about Japan and about international topics offered in the International Exchange Curriculum. And, of course, just living in Japan will be an education in itself.
At the International Lounge, located on the first floor of the Center Building (which was renovated in 2015), a variety of international programs are held for all Hokusei Gakuen University students. Three main programs are offered, named the “Ambassador Program” (introduce your university and culture to Hokusei Gakuen University students), “International Cafe” (work as a Cafe staff member) and “Gaikokugo-Asobiba” (play games such as cards with Hokusei Gakuen University students). Additionally, new international activities and events are being offered, so please feel free to come and join us!
On Thursday, December 10th, a speech presentation in Japanese by international students was held at the International Lounge. Each student presented their memories and what they learned from living in Japan.
On Tuesday, September 8th, new international students for the fall semester 2015 arrived on campus. We are proud to have 19 students in total from North America, Indonesia, Korea, China, and Taiwan.
