Kyushu University

Established in 1911, Kyushu University was the first national university to create a short-term study abroad program, Japan in Today's World, that allows international students to use English as the medium of instruction in a variety of multi-disciplinary classes.

Students can choose to study for a year (October to July) or for a semester (October to February, or April to July). Students are housed in university dormitories, but short-term host family visits can be arranged.

Kyushu University has direct exchange agreements with Berea College in Kentucky, Duke University, Princeton University, Rice University, the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, the University of Washington in Seattle, the University of Wisconsin at Madison, and Yale University, in addition to numerous other universities in Asia and Europe.

A six-week summer program, Asia In Today's World, is also offered, which has attracted undergraduate and graduate students from the top universities in the US, Belgium, the UK, Sweden, China, Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, and the Philippines.

Application forms and information for applicants can be obtained on the Web or from the International Student Center. For more information, please contact:
