Exchange Program

As of May 1, 2016, there are students from 28 different countries attending Yamaguchi University, and this year the number of exchange students will be increasing by nearly 100 as we receive the new exchange students for the Faculty of Global and Science Studies. We provide our exchange students with all levels of Japanese classes, countless ways to interact with and experience Japanese culture, and a wide variety of academic opportunities. If you are interested in an exchange program to Japan, please contact the International Student Support Office for more information.

 

Requirements

Even if the following conditions are satisfied, admission is based on selection by Yamaguchi University and is not guaranteed. The university will attempt to place students in their faculty or graduate school of choice, but this is not always possible.

The faculty or graduate school which students enter must be consistent with the students’ specialty in their own universities. The Faculty of Global and Science Studies is an exception and does not require any specific specialties.
We may reassign your faculty based on your study plan and the classes that you wish to take.  


Minimum Japanese language requirement:

Faculties and graduate schools except the Graduate School of Innovation and Technology Management have Japanese language requirement. All students except the Graduate School of Innovation and Technology Management should take the Yamaguchi University Japanese Level Test online. 
The Graduate School of Innovation and Technology Management requires TOEIC score of 800 or an equivalent level, not Japanese language proficiency.
Please contact the International Student Support Office for more information.
