Japan from Partner Schools
Messages from International Exchange Students who are Visiting Japan from Partner Schools
Introductions of our Partner Schools Given by International Exchange Students
Assumption University (Thailand)
We asked Tamonwan Ua-Udomsataporn and Nanin Indra Payoong (students from Assumption University who are studying at Gakushuin University on the 2014 exchange program) to introduce their home university to us.
- What are the characteristics of Assumption University?
“All of the classes are held in English, so you can study abroad in English. This is why we have so many international students in the classes, and there is a really international atmosphere.”
“Everyone is used to international students, and they are really friendly.” (Nanin)
- What are the university cafeterias like?
“At the cafeterias you can enjoy food from around the world. This is because we have so many international exchange students.
- Is it true that the campus is really beautiful?
“Yes. It’s really big and nice.”
(Tamonwan also told us that the campus was used to film some of the scenes from the Lupin III film shown last summer.)
All of the classes held at Assumption University in Thailand are held in English, and its partner university exchange program recruits students who want to study abroad in English. The English test scores needed to apply are easier to obtain than those needed to study at universities in Western countries, and Assumption University looks forward to seeing many applications.
Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications (China)
We asked Qiu Ya Han and Yuan A Di (students from Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications who are studying at Gakushuin University on the 2014 exchange program) to introduce their home university to us.
“At Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications, you can study science subjects, such as computing, in addition to subjects such as law, economics and the humanities. The teachers are really friendly. There are three campuses and the university is really large. The student dormitories have two students per room and they are really nice, just like a hotel. The cafeterias have a large selection of dishes to choose from, and you can enjoy food from all over China. Classes are offered in traditional Chinese culture, such as Tai chi and Chinese knotting. There are not many international students from Japan. The Japanese department would be delighted to welcome some Japanese exchange students, so please think about studying at our university.”
