Events for international students

The International Centre organizes a variety of events for international students. For details, please see G-Port or the individual folders at the International Centre.

Orientation for new international students

In early April each year, an orientation meeting is held for new students from overseas, providing information about residence status, scholarships, health insurance, etc.

Those who wish to take Japanese language classes must attend the guidance for Japanese language courses provided by the Foreign Language Teaching and Research Centre.

Parties, etc.

A welcome party is usually held in April. A farewell party is held twice a year: late July and late January-early February.

Japanese Culture Week

The International Centre holds multiple events for privately-funded and exchange students enrolled in Gakushuin University to have first-hand experience of Japanese culture. The students learn, for example, how to play the "karuta" card game and the "sugoroku" board game, and what Japanese calligraphy and flower arrangement are like. Japanese volunteer students help the International Centre organize the events, enjoying the opportunities to interact and deepen their ties with international students.

Off-campus study opportunities

In order to give international students opportunities to deepen their understanding of Japanese history, culture and nature, which are not always readily available on campus, we arrange viewings of Japanese traditional performing arts as well as one-day bus trips to historical locations close to Tokyo. For details on how to participate, please see G-Port or the individual folders at the International Centre.

Home stays

International students studying at Gakushuin University are given opportunities to stay with families of Gakushuin students for about one week during a long vacation without charge (except for personal expenses, such as costs for public transportation). Breakfast, dinner, bed and bedclothes are provided. Detailed information will be posted on G-Port.
