Study Abroad and Exchange (Outgoing)

Exchange Program
Students can study at our partner universities for up to a year. Through these long-term programs, students learn to understand different cultures and to look at their own culture from a different perspective. Most bi-lateral agreements allow the students to study at the partner universities without paying tuition fees and to transfer the credits they obtain to their home universities. Students are selected on the basis of their G.P.A., TOEIC/TOEFL/IELTS scores, study plan and statement of purpose.

"Looking for Myself" Project  120 (LMP 120)
A variety of short-term language and culture training programs organized by our partner universities are available for FWU students in summer and spring. The project has received the financial support of the Japan Student Services Organization (JASSO) and FWU, which provides scholarships to those who participate. Each course requires participants to study for a minimum of 30 hours' class time and conducting an independent study project the student will work on abroad.
