Academic Advisors

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.

Tutor System

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.
