|Restrictions:||URI applicants only|
As stated in Kyushu University's website,"with eleven major universities and 77,000 students, Fukuoka is noted as a city of youthful verve and fashion. All parts of the urban area are easily accessible by subway, bus, or bicycle, and Fukuoka’s 24,000 foreign residents, most of them from China and Korea, find the bustling downtown district of Tenjin well-stocked with imported foods and foreign language books. The renowned nightlife quarter of Nakasu also offers a wide variety of restaurants with all kinds of traditional fare and international cuisine. The fresh seafood of Fukuoka is famous throughout Japan! The best seasons here are the spring and fall when clear blue skies make a perfect backdrop for the abundant cherry blossoms and vivid red maple leaves. While generally mild in winter (with temperatures seldom falling below -3°C), it can be quite humid in summer (though temperatures rarely rise above 33°C), particularly during the short rainy season.

Classes are held at the International Student Center on our main Hakozaki Campus. Each course lasts for fifteen weeks (i.e., one semester), with one ninety-minute class meeting every week. Although designed specifically for JTW students, classes are also open to regular Kyushu students. You can choose to earn extra credits as well, as long as you arrange with the course supervisor to complete the required amount of extra assignments.
