[Japan] 2020 Spring Semester Intake – Chubu University

Greetings from Chubu University!

With the addition of the new College of Contemporary Education, Chubu University has become a comprehensive university encompassing 7 colleges and 30 departments in the arts and sciences. Initially established as a pre-eminent technical university for the Chubu region, in April 1984 Chubu University added to its original College of Engineering, the College of Business Administration and Information Science, and the College of International Studies. April 1998 saw the foundation of the College of Humanities, and in April of 2001, the university opened its newest faculty, the College of Bioscience and Biotechnology. In April 2006, the College of Life and Health Sciences was opened, and on April 2008, the College of Contemporary Education was established.

Characteristics of the university are its establishment of a structure that is truly comprehensive, including studies of the fields of nature, society, and the humanities at its six colleges and twenty-one departments of arts and science. The university has created an academic environment in which students can study beyond the spheres of each department or college. Considered extremely important is the combination of fostering a multi-lateral outlook while gaining in-depth specialization. The university strives to educate students who can contribute fully to a 21st-century society – providing knowledge in the arts to technology students, as well as teaching the fundamentals of science to those majoring in the humanities. Therefore, Chubu University encourages students to attend lectures in colleges and departments other than their own majors.

On this occasion, We are pleased to inform you of the application forms for the 2020 spring semester intake.
we would like to accept up to “2” one-year students for this program.
