International Exchange of Students

Experiencing a different society, economy, culture and life and objectively examining our environment leads us to develop interest in what we have overlooked and to deepen our understanding of what has seemed simple. With the aim of offering such opportunities to students, the University of Hyogo implements student exchange with overseas universities.

Hyogo Prefecture has the following two programs that are unique in the country:
- Hyogo Joint Summer Session at Sea
This program, operated by Hyogo Prefecture and universities in Hyogo, is a 30-day voyage during summer vacation. During the journey, students from member universities attend university lectures on board and visit several countries in the Asia Pacific Region, so as to deepen international understanding and develop friendship regardless of their home university.
- HUMAP (Network Scheme of Hyogo University Mobility in Asia and the Pacific)
Under the Agreement on the Network Scheme of Hyogo University Mobility in Asia and the Pacific, member universities in Hyogo Prefecture and the Asia Pacific region implement reciprocal exemption of tuition. In addition, HUMAP defrays expenses for exchange projects.
