For Prospective Foreign Students

A Perfect Environment for an Enjoyable Student Life

The Student Plaza is an 'information station' equipped with all the facilities and equipment necessary to student life. In addition to the information corner which posts class-related news, there is also a student lounge, drinks corner, convenience store, post office and ATM machines. Not only that, a book shop, stationary store, travel agency, hamburger shop, noodle shop, and female locker room are also available for the benefit of the students.

Cafeterias, popular for their good, cheap, and varied menus, are found in each of the three student halls. Also, in order to ensure both the mental and physical health of the students, an infirmary and a student advisory room provide access to doctors, nurses and professional counselors. There is also single room accommodation available in the university's residence halls for first year students, and the student affairs office provides information relating to apartments for those living off campus. Students who prefer not to take advantage of the excellent public transport facilities are invited to use the university's parking lots that provide capacity for up to 1,800 cars.

Also, the Chubu University Support Committee, involving mainly parents of Chubu University students, tirelessly supports the continuous development of the university's education and research capabilities, extracurricular activities, welfare facilities, and employment opportunities.

Internet Resources

At Chubu University there are over 3,500 personal computers all around the university, all with direct connections to the Internet. This gives students ready access to information to help them adjust to life in Japan and it allows them to keep in contact with their families and friends at home. Of course, they can also use the Internet to collect information necessary for their studies and to seek out books and other resources from the library. Each student is provided with an e-mail address at the time of enrollment. Also, as part of many courses, we offer computer-related subjects, such as Introduction to Information Processing, to help students develop the skills required to use the Internet effectively.

Communication and Information Exchange and Support for Overseas Students

Aichi prefecture, where Chubu University is located, offers many international exchange facilities that overseas students can use freely. These include Nagoya International Center and Aichi International Association. Also, Chubu University itself organizes many activities to provide opportunities for overseas students to meet and mingle with Japanese students. These include welcome parties, study trips, the university autumn festival and farewell parties.

Comprehensive Guidance on Careers and Further Study

Employment

  • Our Employment Office staff offer individual guidance on employment to students, covering work opportunities both in Japan and back in students' home countries. Students are given comprehensive counseling and advice that ranges from general orientation to specific introductions to companies seeking graduates.
  • Chubu University has introduced many of its past overseas students to employers, mainly companies with branch offices or plants overseas. A lot of our graduates are actively working now as "bridges" between their home countries and Japan.
  • Chubu University alumni and supporting organizations also strongly support overseas students in finding work after graduation. With all this assistance overseas students need not feel disadvantaged when it comes to finding employment.
