• Tutor System

    Newly arrived international students may be assisted in their academic and daily life by Japanese students who are assigned as personal tutors. The role of tutors is mainly to aid foreign students in Japanese and everyday life "guidance" (campus guide, help with applications, shopping, and apartment searching). International students are encouraged to make constructive use of this system to get used to Japanese life at the university. If the students feel uncomfortable with their assigned tutors for any reason, they should consult with their academic advisor without hesitation.

    * The number of guidance hours may vary, depending on the time of arrival or the period of study.
