  • Special Information Seminar "Health Services for Foreigners in Tsukuba"

    07 18, 2017

    International students in Tsukuba often do not pay much attention to health or medical problems. But if they (or a family member) happen to fall ill or get injured in an accident, they find themselves having to navigate an unfamiliar health system from scratch in order to seek medical assistance. The University of Tsukuba Health Center provides some basic health services, emergency first aid and various health consultations for students. However, there have been cases among our students who were not aware of their illness and fell into a critical condition from a lack of understanding of these support systems. Through this special seminar for international students and their families, representatives from health-related offices of Tsukuba City Hall and from the University Health Center will explain what health and medical services Tsukuba City provides to its residents and how foreigners can avail of them.
