Study Abroad in Japan (9)

1 名前: Lethardicus : 2008-11-11 01:29 ID:n76MmwF8

I am a sophomore computer science student in college. I want to study abroad in Japan but my school does not have a study abroad program. Next semester I will be taking my 4th semester of Japanese so I think I'll most likely have a minimum language requirement. I want to study abroad in Fall of 2009 for one semester. Preferably I want to be in Tokyo. I've already done a ton of research and my computer science department and international student adviser here is willing to back me up and negotiate but I'm going to have to find a good school and program that will take me.

I need a school with

  1. Good International Student Support (good staff and etc.)
  2. Allows those International students to take Computer Science courses actually for credit (not those BS Humanities courses that most programs offer)
  3. Preferably Located in or near Tokyo.

I've gone through
Tokyo University of Technology
Tohoku University
Waseda University
Lakeland University (garbage)
Tokyo Institute of Technology (grad school, grr)
and a few others.

It'd be great if any of you guys know any tech schools that might fit the criteria

Hi, Lethardicus.
In my opinion, you should think and google about the level of university because some universities which you listed are highest performing universities in Japan.
If you are a good student and can speak and read Japanese fluently, I recommend that you will go to those universities.


Finally, doesn't your university have a sister school in Japan? If so, I recommend to study abroad there.

If you have any japanese friend, you should ask them at first.

Sorry for my lousy English.
I wish you a every success for your study abroad.

>but my school does not have a study abroad program.

But offers Japanese classes? What school is that?

>not those BS Humanities courses that most programs offer

If you care about your major so much, it doesn't have to be in Japan, does it?
Physical Location (not the quality of professors) doesn't matter in computer science.

>Preferably Located in or near Tokyo

Location, location, location, LOL. Where is your school located? NY?
Why does it have to be Tokyo? Dude, just take a private trip for sightseeing.
I don't see why it has to be a study abroad program.

Or you may want to do a reverse check, see which Japanese colleges offer similar exchange programs with colleges where you're from.

But I'm not too sure if 4 semesters of Japanese class will be enough to take classes in Japanese. May be enough to get by in Japan, but not sure if all the education and technical jargon will be understood. You may want to consider taking a language aptitude test first or something.

東京大学はUniversity of Tokyo。
Tokyo Universityではない。
