First of all, it is important to clarify the purpose of studying abroad. Let's organize why you want to study abroad and how you want to make use of your study abroad experience. After clarifying the purpose, we will make a concrete study abroad plan. Please check the study abroad preparation page for how to make a study abroad plan.

Planning and Preparing to Study Abroad

Let's think back from the time you want to study abroad or the time of recruitment. For short-term study abroad, we will start recruiting from half a year before. Most programs do not have language requirements, so you can apply as soon as the purpose of participation is clarified. For medium- to long-term study abroad, we will recruit from half a year to a year before. It is necessary to check the conditions of language and grades and prepare early.

You can participate. Most "short-term training" programs have no language requirements. Even for long-term study abroad, the "Durham Study Abroad Spring/Autumn Course" has no language requirements, and there is a program in the "Exchange Study Abroad" that allows students who are worried about their language skills to take on the challenge of long-term study abroad.

Even short-term study abroad can be meaningful depending on the attitude of the participants. The good points of short-term study abroad are that you can participate during the vacation period without classes, that you can study abroad at a low cost, and that students who want to study abroad for a long time can practice as a preparatory practice to get an image of what it would be like to study abroad. Even in the case of short-term study abroad programs, there are many benefits to be gained by having a clear sense of purpose and taking proactive action, such as eliminating any resistance to learning a foreign language and increasing interest in foreign countries.

There is a difference in cost and support system. In both cases, it is necessary to pay the tuition fees of the university during the study abroad period, but in the case of exchange study abroad, the tuition fee of the study abroad destination will be exempted by the promise with the partner school. In the case of accredited study abroad, it is necessary to include the tuition fee of the study abroad destination. In exchange study abroad, the university will support the application procedure and troubles during study abroad, but in accredited study abroad, you have to do all the procedures yourself.

There is a scholarship system for each study abroad program, which can reduce the cost of studying abroad. In addition, many programs do not require a leave of absence and have a credit system, so it is possible to aim for graduation in four years. In addition, we can support study abroad procedures such as application procedures, visa application procedures, travel procedures, and securing accommodation at the university.

Yes, if you get permission from those who have studied abroad, it is possible. Please consult with the administrative department of your campus. In addition, the results of a survey of those who have studied abroad can be viewed at the International Exchange Division of Hachioji Campus.

There are many benefits to learning English in Asia. Many companies are paying attention to the Asian region, which is becoming the center of the world economy, and the experience of studying abroad in the Asian region will be of interest in job hunting. Even after getting a job, English does not always communicate with countries of the first language. Studying abroad in Asia will allow each other to exchange opinions in a second foreign language, and it is expected that they will acquire the ability to convey their thoughts even under such circumstances. Also, compared to studying abroad in Western countries, you can reduce various expenses such as tuition, living expenses, and travel expenses. Depending on the program, you may be able to study abroad for a long time in Asia at the cost of studying abroad in Western countries for a short period of time.

You can graduate in 4 years by using the study abroad program that can be included in the period of study abroad. However, the conditions for taking courses differ depending on the faculty and department to which you belong, so it is important to consult with the faculty and staff in advance and make a solid plan for taking courses until graduation.
