I Applying for the Exchange Student Program




1 Features of the Meiji University Exchange Student Program


(1) Classes

1. Of the 13,000 class sessions offered at Meiji University, 12,000 are conducted in Japanese. For this reason, those applying for admission to the exchange student program are generally required to have a certain level of Japanese-language proficiency. (However, the English Track of the School of Global Japanese Studies, the English Track of the Graduate School of Governance Studies, and the International Program in Architecture and Urban Design of the Graduate School of Science and Technology, or will be taking classes in English in the School of Business Administration do not require Japanese-language skills.)

2. You can view the syllabus for each school and graduate school by visiting the following website:

(2) Academic Advisors

1. Exchange students are generally assigned an academic advisor and participate in seminars in which those advisors provide instruction directly to students. These seminars are comprised of 10–20 students and encourage active discussions with the advisors. Students participating in these seminars not only get access to direct counseling by their academic advisors, they are also able to interact with other students (excluding students in the English Track of the Graduate School of Governance Studies).

2. Not all students can participate in the seminars. Participation depends on Japanese-language proficiency and the number of seats available. Upon their arrival in Japan, exchange students will meet with their academic advisors and create study plans that include these seminars if appropriate.

3. Students accepted into the English Track of the Graduate School of Governance Studies will not participate in a seminar. However, they must take a course called “research methods” conducted during their study-abroad term taught by the academic advisor the graduate school assigns to them. They must also take at least one class taught by that advisor.


(3) Japanese-Language Course

Exchange students can take a Japanese-language course through the Meiji Language Program (MLP). A regular course that can be taken for credit, it will give students the Japanese-language skills they need to study at Meiji University. For details, please see p. 20.




2 Schools and Graduate Schools (Programs) Accepting Applications and the Number of Openings


All Meiji University schools and graduate schools accept exchange students. The number of students accepted is determined based on the agreements between Meiji University and its partner schools.
