Guidance Given to 2018 Fall New International Students

 Shinshu University held introductory briefings on September 19th and 26th to welcome 48 international students from all over the world. The students are currently studying Japanese language and culture on the Shinshu University student exchange programs.

 Global Education Center's professors and staff welcomed all the newcomers and provided essential guidance about life and studying at Shinshu University, including information about Japanese Language Courses and the newly introduced coeducational program for both International and Japanese Students. The new students also learned about traffic safety and were given contact information for emergencies.

 The newly arrived international students from the U.S.A., Australia, the Netherlands, Poland, Russia, China, Korea, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, Belgium and Belarus are excited to be embarking on their new life at Shinshu University, though perhaps also a little anxious.
