Foreign Study and International Exchange

The International Center supports and offers many sorts of international exchange activities aimed at enabling students to grow into individuals who can communicate without barriers with people having a variety of values and customs. These diverse activities include support for study abroad (both short- and long-term); welcoming of international students from overseas; planning of international exchange events; language classes to prepare for the TOEFL exam, etc.; and support for overseas volunteer work and internships. The study abroad program currently has agreements with 80 schools and 1 consortium in 22 countries and territories. Each year a large number of students attend universities overseas to participate in long-term study abroad for a full year or in short-term study abroad during the summer or spring break. In addition, Meiji Gakuin University hosts over 200 international students from all over the world (both as regular enrollees and as exchange students). The buddy system, through which Japanese students provide support for international students by assisting them with their studies and other aspects of their life in Japan; the host family system, which provides opportunities for international students to experience everyday life in Japan; and a variety of events organized around exchanges with international students mean that students at Meiji Gakuin University can experience frequent international exchanges without even leaving campus. We urge you to participate fully in these programs and to find the style of international exchange that suits you best.
