Japanese Language Courses
Helping those with limited knowledge of the Japanese language.
Japanese is the basic language of instruction at the Faculty of Agriculture, Shinshu University. Embassy- and government-sponsored international students attend a half-year Japanese language course before entering university, but if they need additional support after admission, they are also able to participate in ongoing Japanese language instruction provided by the Shinshu University International Center.
Teachers are able to counsel students on research and career wishes.
Students are able to discuss research they want to conduct and their hopes for the future with a sympathetic advisor who is ready to help with any problems or uncertainties the students have.
Japanese nationals also studying at Shinshu University are allocated to help international students.
We understand that international students wish to have Japanese friends, but we also realize how difficult it is for them to begin such friendships. That is why we have developed the Tutor System. The Tutor System enables international exchange between international students and Japanese students studying at Shinshu University. Events are regularly organized as a place for making new friends through cultural exchange. We believe that the world will become more open and friendly through cross-border friendships like these.
