Study Support

Academic Advisors

Academic advisors from the International Center and from each faculty are able to offer advice regarding both your studies and your everyday life. Feel free to visit them and talk about any problems you might have at the earliest opportunity.

Tutor System

Each international student at Shinshu University will be allocated a tutor, whose task is to help in both academic and non-academic matters. We recommend that you utilize your tutor to help you quickly become accustomed to Japanese life and to make as much progress as possible in your studies. In general, the purpose of the tutor is to support undergraduate students for their first two years, and graduate and research students for their first year in Japan.
