International Student Support

Kanazawa University provides international students with a variety of support so that they can pursue their studies with a sense of reassurance. A survey is conducted once every five years through a questionnaire to serve as basic data in the creation of an effective student support system. The results of this survey has shown that 97.6 percent of our international students are satisfied or somewhat satisfied with their studies or research, and 93.7 percent are satisfied or somewhat satisfied with the services that are provided for international students.

Tutor System

Tutors are Japanese students who offer many kinds of support to international students including in their studies, daily life, and interpersonal relationships. For studies, they provide assistance in the Japanese language and help prepare materials for submission. For assistance in daily life, tutors provide basic information on living in Japan such as giving advice on how to pay electricity, gas, and water bills. Tutors also help international students to communicate smoothly with other Japanese students or academic advisors, facilitating interpersonal relations.
