Students Support

Students Support

Under this program, which is operated through the conclusion of student exchange agreement/MOU, a tuition waiver clause is applied so that exchange students have no burden of paying for tuitions to their host universities. Moreover, scholarships and accommodations are provided to inbound DD students at Host University. For participation of summer schools and/or research seminars, Host University covers all domestic cost for inbound students.
In each university, the so-called Campus Asia Office, consisting of faculty and administrative staffs, is established, aiming at uniform coordination of student support for learning and daily life. For each inbound student, Host University arranges a supporter to help his daily life at abroad.
Each exchange student during his/her stay in the Host University is mentored or supervised by at least one assigned professor. Not only laboratory studies, which are mandatory in his/her course work, but also his/her daily life is cared for by his/her supervisor in the Host Univ. This makes the role of the supervisor clear and the exchange student easy to live in abroad. The supervisor works as a committee member to review and evaluate thesis studies of the exchange student to award master degree.

Study abroad support system

The CAMPUS Asia office is newly set up as an integrated support center backed by the whole faculty. While coordinating with Kyushu University International Student and Researcher Support Center, the Career Support Department Job Placement Office, and Kyushu University International Student Center, which are all university-wide organizations, the new support office provides finely-tuned assistance and guidance with regard to academic studies, enrollment management, and life and employment in Japan.

Language Plan

The language used at the program is English and daily life of exchange students in Host university is managed with English. To make communication in English easier, special English courses are provided for all students to improve/brush up their English language skills. Moreover, the semester exchange students usually learn the native language of host country to help understanding of culture of the host country.
