Partner Institutions

Under the exchange program, students currently studying Japanese language at their home institutions can continue their studies at our university, and Sugiyama students can study abroad at one of the partner institutions. The participants receive credits at their home institutions for academic work done at the partner institutions.
Exchange students from the partner institutions live at the school dormitory and mainly study Japanese language and culture at the CIEP. Moreover, the home visits organized during the weekends help students not only to improve their Japanese language skills but also to give them an opportunity to experience everyday Japanese life. In addition, exchange students can participate in extracurricular activities along Japanese students to experience Japanese culture.
The internship program offered since 1999 allows exchange students to use their knowledge of the Japanese language in a practical way by working at local establishments.
