Global Education

In order to keep up with increasing globalization in the world, evidenced by deepening economic interdependence internationally, rapidly developing information and communications technology, and increases in foreign travelers and residents, Yamaguchi University is now turning its efforts toward fostering globally competent human resources who understand global contexts and can adapt to different values and environments. Looking both to accept as many international students as possible and to provide our Japanese students an opportunity to study abroad and experience different cultures, the university boasts a variety of programs that cultivate global competence. These programs are supported by 134 overseas partner universities and institutions in 32 countries and territories, 6 overseas offices, and 8 double degree programs as of May 1, 2016.
