Seinan Gakuin University is a humanities-focused university with a long history of international student exchange. The international exchange program, now managed in the Center for International Education, is one of the oldest such programs in Japan. The location of the University, in Kyushu’s largest city, known as the “gateway to Asia ” offers students an exciting environment in which to learn and grow.
-International Division (Inbound program for exchange students)
Established in 1973, the International Division offers a one or two semester program running from August to May the following year, through which students earn transferable credits required for graduation. The course content concentrates on Japan, including Japanese language, culture, history, tradition, business and politics, with all courses except the Japanese language taught in English.
Most of the admitted foreign students are exchange students from universities that have entered into mutual exchange agreements with SGU, bringing in approximately 80 students per year, and SGU currently accepts foreign students from 56 institutions in 20 countries. We are one of the few Japanese universities to offer courses on Japanese culture in English, with credits that can be applied to graduation.
