Full Support for Study Abroad
Cooperation among the University of Tsukuba, Partner Universities and the UT Overseas Offices.
During your study abroad, you are required to attend lectures and to obtain a maximum of ten credits. Academic advisors, together with local advisors at partner universities, offer continuous guidance and maintain regular contact with students via information and communication technology. The program will support fieldwork and research while students are studying abroad.
A homestay is a highly recommended for your stay throughout the entire study-abroad period. Through this experience, you will learn about local customs, language, and society.
Students are expected to work as interns at either local Japanese companies or government-affiliated organizations in order to gain real work experiences.
Some students may participate in the Student Exchange Nippon Discovery (SEND) Program of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology. SEND introduces Japanese culture and language to local people. Participation in SEND, as well as internships, will contribute toward the credits needed for your degree.
