Exchange Programs at Tohoku University

Tohoku University has an extensive range of Student Exchange Programs with universities throughout the world. The exchange programs allow you to complete a semester or two of your degree at Tohoku University. There are two such programs available for undergraduate students. See below for details.

If you are interested in applying, please note that you cannot apply through the FGL Program. You should inquire directly with the exchange programs liaison (see "Inquiries" box at the bottom of this page).

Junior Year Program in English (JYPE)

The main purpose of this program is to offer an opportunity for you to take science, engineering, and education courses at Tohoku University, without having to attain the Japanese language proficiency that would be necessary to take the same courses in Japanese. All lectures are given in English and course credit will be given by the standards for the equivalent courses offered in Japanese.

We recommend that you take two semesters (one-year), because some classes are designed for a whole year. However, a few students can be admitted for a single semester(6 months).
