International Exchange Center

From the late 1990s, Kanazawa Seiryo University has been actively engaging in exchanges with overseas universities. In order to continue these efforts to internationalize our university, the International Exchange Center was established in April of 2014. The International Exchange Center, as the center of international education at our university, promotes study abroad amongst Kanazawa Seiryo University students, provides support for international students, and facilitates exchange between KSU and other institutions of higher education through out the world.

Currently, Kanazawa Seiryo University has concluded academic exchange agreements with 51 universities from 20 different countries, including China, Russia, the United States, and the United Kingdom. Students at Kanazawa Seiryo University have opportunities for both short-term and long-term study abroad programs at any one of these institutions. Moreover, each year we accept short-term international students from partner schools as well as full-time international students.

International Exchange Center is to help international students with their adjustments to Japan, their new home and new school, providing with academic advice as well as Japanese language support to make their university life fulfilling.
As we continue to expand our partnerships with foreign universities, the staff of the International Exchange Center will continue to put forth their best efforts in order to develop Kanazawa Seiryo University into a global university.

Seiryo Ambassadors

“Seiryo Ambassadors” is a volunteer group which consists of both Japanese and international students. They plan and manage international exchange events at Kanazawa Seiryo University. This group was formed to increase the number of cultural and language exchange opportunities for students on campus.

With the hope to become mediators between Japanese and international students at Seiryo, “Seiryo Ambassadors” play an important part in globalizing our campus.
