[Overseas Study at a Participating School]
Ibaraki University Supports Your Overseas Study.Ibaraki University has concluded a number of exchange agreements with colleges and research institutes around the world with the aim of promoting two-way student exchange. If you want to improve your language skills, perform cutting-edge research, or simply see the world, you can join the overseas exchange program and turn your dreams into reality. At the International Student Center, we seek to support students who want to study overseas by offering information on overseas exchange and participating schools. We do this through Overseas Exchange Explanatory Meetings, the Overseas Exchange Fair, Overseas Exchange Salon, and one-on-one counseling regarding overseas exchange.
Studying Overseas at a Participating School
Ibaraki University has concluded a number of exchange agreements with colleges and research institutes around the world. We actively seek to promote international exchange between faculty and researchers, as well as between students.
【Period of Exchange】
This depends on the university, but for most schools the exchange period is generally a year or less.
【Tuition and Fees at the Exchange University】
The amount of tuition and fees at the receiving university will vary (please see Exchange Agreements between Universities and Colleges）. Travel and living costs are the responsibility of the student.
At Ibaraki University, we have a system whereby credits acquired at the exchange university may be transferable. However, you must be careful because some departments will not accept credits from classes that you take overseas. Only credits in certain majors/courses can be transferred.
We accept applications from November of the year before you plan to start your exchange program. However, for schools where the desired number of applicants is not yet filled, we will accept applications from April of the year you plan to start (this applies to schools other than those participating schools with earlier application times).
Applications are accepted through the colleges, so please be sure to check the bulletin board at each college.
* The in-house selection of candidates for overseas exchange is not the final decision regarding overseas exchange. The final decision will be made by the receiving university. The formal decision will be made after the process for acceptance by the receiving university has been approved.
* In principle, you may not refuse the overseas exchange once you have passed the in-house selection.
By refusing, there is a significant possibility that you would damage the reputation of Ibaraki University.
Please take care to plan your overseas exchange carefully before you apply.
Each college will conduct the preliminary selections. Selections will be made by taking into account the reason for overseas exchange and language ability, as well as academic achievement and attendance. After the interview, each student will be judged on his or her appropriateness.
A secondary selection will be made if, after the preliminary selections are complete, there are more students who have been recommended from each college than the number which can be sent to the participating schools. The criteria for the secondary selection will include the interview, grades in general subjects (grade calculation coefficient), and a statement of the student’s reasons for studying overseas.
【About Scholarships】The Support System for Overseas Student Exchange (short-term) of the Japan Student Services Association (JASSO) Information on Study in Japan allows you to study overseas at a participating school while receiving a scholarship. For further details, see Support System for Overseas Student Exchange (Short-term). In addition, information about scholarships from each national government and brochures about many overseas exchange programs can be found on the bulletin board in the International Student Center.
【About Overseas Exchange to English-Speaking Countries】For overseas exchanges to English-speaking countries, it is necessary to take the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language). For further details, please see the TOEFL page.
