1. Academic Advisors

Students encountering difficulties with regard to their studies or campus life, are encouraged to make an appointment with their academic advisor for assistance. Since there are slight differences in this system depending on school and student status, the office of your school should be consulted for further information.

2. Degrees

Degrees will be granted to undergraduate and graduate students who have completed the necessary courses in the given amount of time, earned the required number of credits, and satisfied the requirements of the school. Contact the office of your school for further details.

3. Tutors

All international students will be able to receive tutoring in their major field of study and research by a graduate student for one year (two years for undergraduate students) after arriving in Japan. International students who meet the necessary requirements are also eligible to be assigned as tutors to other international students. Ask the office of your school for further information.
