The Hokkaido University Short-Term Exchange Program (HUSTEP) is a ‘junior year abroad’ type program designed to provide students from affiliated universities with the opportunity to study for one academic year in Japan at Hokkaido University. Participants in this program take a wide variety of courses offered in English in the fields of Culture and Society, Environment, Science and Technology. In addition, participants can pursue independent study research under the guidance of a faculty member. Students also have the chance to study the Japanese language. There will also be an opportunity to take part in numerous traditional and contemporary Japanese cultural activities. Students admitted to the program are eligible to apply for a scholarship.
HUSTEP provides a safe and caring environment in which to carry out your academic studies and broaden your horizons. A year in Japan in HUSTEP will help to prepare you for the future with knowledge and experiences that will last a lifetime. In addition, you will have a wonderful opportunity to meet and make friends with many Japanese people as well as international students from all around the world who come to study at Hokkaido University. We would like to invite motivated university students from ALL disciplines to participate in HUSTEP.
