I am interested in hearing from International Students finishing their year abroad or even native Japanese students to ask a couple of questions about their year abroad in Japan or as a full time student respectively at a Japanese university that I will list.
By November, I need to select my University for my year abroad in Japan, in which my degree is International Relations with Modern Languages (Japanese). I am interested in three main things:
One: How hard do the following universities work you in comparison to your college or university or home country? Is getting part-time work achievable?
Two: Are international connections good? E.g. International Student Circles etc.
Three: What are travel opportunities like in these areas?
The following universities I have to choose from:
Akita International University
International Christian University
Kobe University ( I understand that this is a women's college, however for the sake of it being in Kansai, I have kept it on the list)
Meiji Gakuin University
Yokohama National University
Even if you weren't a student from these universities, at least you will be able to answer the other questions in regards to the international connections and travel opportunities in these regions.
