Fukuoka Prefectural University

International Exchange

International

 Fukuoka is popularly known as "the gateway to Asia" and, since its foundation in 1992, Fukuoka Prefectural University has reached out to other universities around the world and embraced a range of international exchange initiatives. Our activities in this regard have included the exchange of academic personnel, student exchange programmes and symposiums in cooperation with the universities listed below.

At Fukuoka Prefectural University, we encourage our students to be active participants in the international community. We therefore offer a variety of intercultural experiences such as homestays and short-term language programmes in foreign countries, as well as on-campus interaction with foreign exchange students at FPU.

Academically-affiliated Universities

Nanjing Normal University (China, agreement concluded in 1994)
Daegu Haany University (Rep. of Korea, agreement concluded in 2006)
Beijing University of Chinese Medicine (China, agreement concluded in 2009)
Khon Kaen University (Thailand, MOU concluded in 2009)
Sahmyook University (Rep. of Korea, agreement concluded in 2010)

Language Programmes

●The UK Study Programme
Each summer, approximately 20 students from Fukuoka Prefectural University visit the UK. While there, they explore two capital cities (London and Cardiff), visit numerous World Heritage Sites and participate in English conversation classes with British university students.

In the UK, our students also conduct research relating to their interests and study subjects at FPU. They prepare for this before going to the UK by attending a special class. This class focuses on "survival English", the cultural differences between Japan and the UK, and the preparation of research questionnaires.

The UK Study Programme is truly a "once in a lifetime" experience!

●Exchange Programmes and Scholarships with Korean and Chinese Universities
(1) Study-abroad Exchange Programmes with Affiliated Institutions
Student exchange agreements have been concluded with two institutions in China, two institutions in South Korea, and one institution in Thailand. Every year in each of these three countries, several FPU students participate in long-term (one-year) study-abroad programmes.

As a further component of these programmes, participating students are accepted onto, and engage in, various enterprises for the facilitation of education and cultural exchange. These student exchange programmes include the following:
i) China
・Nanjing Normal University
A unique opportunity to study Chinese at a traditional Japanese university dating back more than 100 years.

Up to three FPU students may be admitted annually to study for one year (February-January) at Nanjing Normal University. Students wishing to apply are invited to do so between early July and October.

Up to five FPU students may be admitted annually onto this programme. Participating students may choose to study in South Korea at Daegu Haany University for one year (February-January) or six months only (February-July or August-January).

・Sahmyook University
An opportunity to study a range of subjects relating to Korean language, culture and specialized fields.

Up to five FPU students may be admitted annually onto this programme. Participating students may study in South Korea at Sahmyook University for one year (February-January). Students wishing to apply are invited to do so between early July and October. Since this programme represents only a temporary withdrawal from regular studies, additional tuition is unnecessary.

(2) Study-abroad Scholarships
So as to ease the economic burden of studying abroad, a scholarship may be granted to a student participating in an exchange programme.

There is no requirement to return the sum awarded (however, scholarships may not be duplicated nor awarded from other sources to the same student).

Please ask the student support group for details.
