International Exchange Programs
We have many international exchange programs that help us educate students who will enter the workforce ready to be active internationally and that help us be a university that contributes to international society.
Contributions to International Society
Students and faculty of Shizuoka University of Art and Culture are active internationally through participation in academic research and exchange. A broad-based education for internationally minded individuals allows students to develop a sense of themselves as global citizens.
Promotion of International Exchange
Shizuoka University of Art and Culture participates in exchanges with universities in Asia (China, Korea, etc.) and English-speaking regions of the world (US, UK, etc.) We provide support for students’ international activities, such as study abroad exchange programs and research exchanges, that broaden their horizons.
Support for International Students
Shizuoka University of Art and Culture has a support system for international students, including our own scholarship system, so students from abroad can enjoy campus life with peace of mind.
Scholarships and Tuition Reduction
Privately funded international students receive a 30% reduction in tuition fees.
The University has its own scholarship system to offer financial support to privately funded international students. Scholarships are awarded in amounts of either ¥10,000 or ¥20,000 per month; the amount may vary depending on the amount of other scholarship money being received.
Application Procedures for Scholarships Offered by Other Public Institutions and Private Foundations
We provide information and file applications for Japan Student Services Organization’s (JASSO) Scholarship for Privately Financed International Students and other scholarships and financial aid offered by other private foundations.
We have an advising system in which faculty and staff serve as advisors to offer assistance at any time.
International Student Guidance Session
An International Student Guidance Session is held in early April every year. The session includes such information as an explanation of various types of scholarships, an introduction to various international student support services and information about international student exchange events.
Social Events and Study Tours for International Students
Social events for international students are held several times a year so international students, Japanese students and faculty can form their friendships. Study tours are also scheduled so international students can arrive at an understanding of Japanese history, culture and industry and enjoy a richer learning experience.
