Student Support

Senior students serve as “tutors” for new students to provide the necessary support for daily life, studying Japanese, and other specialized subjects. In this manner, students who are not yet fluent in Japanese or those who live abroad for the first time can start campus life without any worries.

【The reason why I chose YNU】
I felt it was a great environment for studying on a green and quiet campus. At the newest College of Urban Sciences, you can learn about different social issues from a perspective that combines humanities and sciences and is taught by faculty with diverse personalities.
