Following exchange student agreements, Kansai University accepts exchange students from affiliated universities each year in April and September. The International Division programme offers Japanese language classes and Japanese Studies classes for the exchange students. There are six levels of Japanese language classes that range from beginning to advanced according to the student’s level. Regardless of level, all of the classes emphasise the development of oral skills as well as reading and writing skills. The Japanese Studies classes include a wide variety of subjects: history, social structure, the cultural arts, the military arts, economics, philosophy and religion. All of the classes in Japanese Studies are in English.
Along with the classes above, those exchange students with the language skills are allowed to attend lectures for the Japanese students. Each of these classes is ninety minutes in length.
Those who are graduate students at their home institutions are allowed to study under the direction of a professor at Kansai University. They are, of course, allowed to study Japanese language in the classes designed for the exchange students.
Along with establishing friendships with the students, Kansai University also encourages extracurricular cultural activities with advice and support so that the international students experience culture outside the university experience. The university has thus arranged for cultural activities within Japanese society yet outside of the university with the hope that this will deepen mutual interaction.
