KANAZAWA UNIVERSITY EXCHANGE PROGRAM

KANAZAWA UNIVERSITY EXCHANGE PROGRAM

 


These programs are designed for students enrolled at institutions that have an exchange agreement with Kanazawa University* who intend to study at Kanazawa University for a period of not less than six months to not more than one year. While remaining enrolled at their home institutions, such students may study in a non-degree program at Kanazawa University for the purposes of experiencing a foreign culture, learning practical Japanese, taking credited classes, or participating in independent research under the guidance of a supervisor.

This program aims to provide students from overseas with an opportunity to improve their proficiency in the Japanese language and to deepen their understanding of Japanese culture and society. The program consists of upperintermediate to advanced Japanese language courses (5 lectures per week), cultural courses examining not only present day Japanese society and culture but also the rich traditional culture of Kanazawa (3 lectures per week), a joint research project on multiple languages and cultures with Japanese students (1 lecture per week) and a completion research project on subjects related to Japan (1 lecture per week). This is a one-year program conducted solely in Japanese.
