Eligibility

英文项目

To be eligible to apply for HUSTEP, students must:

1. be from exchange partner universities

2. be enrolled and pay tuition fees at their home universities during study in Japan

3. have completed at least two years of undergraduate study prior to arrival in Japan

4. have GPA of 3.0 (B) or better on a 4.0 scale or equivalent

5. be proficient in English. Non-native English speakers must have a score of at least TOEFL iBT 79 or IELTS 6.5

6. be able to arrive in Sapporo by late September or first week of April

日语项目

  • Applicants must be a Japanese language and/or culture major enrolled in an undergraduate degree course at a partner university of Hokkaido University. First-year students are not eligible to apply.
  • Applicants should have N3 (or higher) on the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) or the equivalent at the time of application. Specifically, applicants should know 500 or more kanji and be able to understand conversation spoken at a natural speed. They should also be able to read and write simple sentences. Any students who are found to have inadequate language skills after arrival will not be able to complete the course.
  • Applicants must possess a good academic record at the university level.
  • Applicants must be between 18 and 29.

Application Procedure

For details, please check the HUSTEP website.

https://www.global.hokudai.ac.jp/prospective-students/ exchange-student-admissions/exchange-programs-in-english-hustep/

 

 

Please note:

There is a screening process and NOT all students who apply will be accepted. Japanese language ability is not required to participate in HUSTEP. Those students whose main focus is studying Japanese language and are majoring in Japanese Studies should consider applying to the Japanese Language and Cultural Studies Program (JLCSP) instead of HUSTEP.

There are a limited number of scholarships available so most students will have to cover their own costs. Although the cost of living in Japan varies for each individual, it will cost about 100,000 yen per month. Thus, students should have enough money saved up to pay for one year of living costs or make other financial arrangements before coming to Japan. Students should be clear that HUSTEP is strictly a study program.

Even if students receive a scholarship, the first payment will be made one month after arrival. Students must bring money to pay for their dormitory fee and living costs for their first month.

Chiba University was founded in 1949, unifying several regional former national colleges and schools such as Chiba Medical College and Chiba Normal School. Its fundamental mission since then has been, as encapsulated by the inscription on the University Bell, ad altiora semper (always toward the higher), to equip students with the ability to make mature and informed judgments while nurturing and guiding their creativity.

Note that it is not customary to tip in Japan. For example, you do not need to tip at restaurants or taxi drivers.

Students intending to take regular university courses instructed in Japanese must possess level one of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT), or the equivalent.

NUPACE will also consider applications from students having scored well in the Japanese language section of the Examination for Japanese University Admission for International Students (EJU). Please contact the NUPACE Office in advance if you have taken this examination.
5) Students Participating in the Programme on a Self-financed Basis, NUPACE requires all self-financed students to provide the Office with documentary proof that they are able to financially maintain themselves for the duration of their exchange in Japan. Prior to their arrival in Japan, self-financed students must send a bank statement (their own, or that of a close family member) to this Office, giving evidence that they possess funding as follows:

1. INSURANCE

All NUPACE students are required to join the Japan National Health Insurance (JNHI) programme. For a monthly fee of approximately ï½¥1,700, JNHI policyholders are entitled to a 70% discount on most medical and dental fees incurred. We are aware that many incoming students are covered by private/home university insurance schemes. However, considering 1) that medical expenses in Japan are relatively high, 2) that Japanese medical facilities do not accept foreign insurance policies in lieu of payment and, 3) that students will, therefore, have to wait a minimum of two months to be reimbursed by their home insurance policies, NUPACE policy is to require Japan National Health Insurance subscription from all students.

2. ACCOMMODATION

All successful applicants are housed.
Single rooms in student dormitories, located either on-campus or close to the university.

3. ESTIMATED LIVING EXPENSES

Health and personal liability insurance: Approximately 2,000 yen per month.

4. VISA REQUIREMENTS

Foreign students intending to pursue studies in Japan must be in possession of a valid passport issued by their country of citizenship. Prior to embarking for Japan, they are also required to apply to the nearest Japanese diplomatic mission (embassy or consulate) for a “college student visa”. In the case of NUPACE students, a “college student visa” is usually issued after the embassy/consulate obtains the applicant’s “Certificate of Eligibility for Status and Residence”.
Nagoya University applies for these “Certificates of Eligibility” on behalf of prospective NUPACE students. And then, once applications have been processed, sends the “Certificates” directly to the students or their home institutions. It is imperative that when applying for a “college student visa”, students take their “Certificate of Eligibility”, passport, and letter of admission to Nagoya University to the Japanese Embassy or Consulate. Students are also required to bring the “Certificate” with them when they enter Japan to submit to the airport authorities.

5. SCHOLARHIPS

Qualified students will be nominated for the Student Exchange Support Program (JASSO) scholarship.
