    Promotion of acceptance of international students

    We provide international students with assistance in matters such as Japanese language studies and consultation on daily life after they enter our university. FUT currently has 107 international students. We aim to build an environment where they can fully enjoy their lives and studies here.

International Center

We aim to foster “global” minded students through cross-cultural experience.

The International Center undertakes three major roles:
First, the promotion of international exchange: We signed cooperative agreements with 12 overseas universities and are promoting the exchange of students and faculty members through various activities such as holding joint seminars.
Second, the acceptance of international students and their continued support after admission: We provide various opportunities for the understanding of Japanese culture and for the improvement of their Japanese language ability.
Third, holding activities and events that bring individuals from various nations together: This aims to give students a deeper understanding of different cultures while encouraging a globalized way of thinking.
This gives our domestic students the best chance to succeed while studying abroad or participating in overseas internships.In short, through these roles, we contribute to the fostering of “global” minds capable of working to cherish traditions world wide.
