Exchange Program

Students may pick Saitama because they like Japan and wish to learn about the country. However, exchange students will discover that Saitama University is the worlds’ gateway to Japan, and Japan’s gateway to the world.

Courses

Regular courses

We offer more than 50 regular courses, conducted in English and ranging from beginner to advanced level. Students will pursue regular courses or the intensive Japanese course depending on Japanese and English language proficiency.

Intensive Japanese Course

For students who wish to concentrate on Japanese language studies, our Japanese Education Center provides comprehensive courses on the Japanese language. Students will be able to take courses in their fields of study in Japanese depending on progress of Japanese proficiency.

Tuition

Exchange students from our partners’ universities will be exempt from tuition, based on corresponding agreements. Once tuition payment is made at your home institute, additional payment will not be needed at Saitama.

Housing

All exchange students from our partners' universities are given priority to move into our student on-campus housing, I-House. I-House includes single unities and family units. Each unit includes a private bathroom and kitchen furnished with basic electric appliances and utensils. More attractively, I-house is located on campus with a two-minute walking distance from the main buildings. And most importantly, we think of the safety of our students with 24 hours security guards.
