International Exchange Center

Since the late 1990s, Kanazawa Seiryo University has been working hard to promote international exchange with overseas universities. In order to further internationalize the university, the International Exchange Center was established in April, 2014. The International Exchange Center promotes studying abroad among KSU students, provides support for international students, and facilitates exchange between KSU and other institutions of higher education throughout the world.

Kanazawa Seiryo University now has 59 partner universities and other academic institutions in 20 different countries, such as the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, the United Kingdom, Hungary, China, Taiwan, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Russia. KSU students have opportunities for both short-term and long-term study abroad programs at any one of these partner institutions. Also we accept short-term and full-time international students from partner institutions each year.

The International Exchange Center helps international students adapt to their new home and school in Japan, offering useful information and advice for living in Japanese society, and holding various events, such as parties, tours, and camps. The IEC staff at KSU is very proud to contribute to international exchange and promises to strive to develop KSU into a truly globalized university.

Seiryo Ambassadors

“Seiryo Ambassadors” is a student volunteer group which both Japanese and international students can join. This group was formed to enhance international understanding and exchange at KSU. Every year, “ambassadors” plan and carry out various kinds of international exchange events at KSU, such as a cherry blossom viewing picnic and a trekking tour. “Seiryo Ambassadors” sincerely hopes to serve as a bridge between international and Japanese students, and further internationalize their campus.
