HUE’s International Partners

Sending Students Overseas

At HUE, we have three types of  International exchange programs: short-term study abroad, long-term student exchange, and long-term language school. Using this, students from HUE can go  to many places in the world to learn  other languages and about other cultures.

Through the programs at Hokkaido University of education (HUE), a lot of students rediscover Japanese cultures and acquire the ability of speaking, listening, writing, reading in other languages. In addition, you can have wonderful experiences which widen your global vision and your ideas of cross-cultural understanding.

Accepting of Students from Overseas

Especially, HUE has rich study abroad arrangements with with Harbin Normal University and Illinois State University. These universities are located in sister cities to Asahikawa.

In total, 16 students came from abroad as exchange students to study at the Asahikawa campus in 2014. Every time new exchange students come to HUE, we always hold a welcome party and play icebreaker games in English. Attending this party gives exchange students and regular students  at HUEA the chance to make friends.  While at HUEA, exchange students take classes to understand Japanese culture and society, and promote exchange with the students of HUE.

HUE Global Education Leadership Program

In 2015, we started the Global education Leadership Program (GEL). This program helps you for preparation before going abroad.In the GEL program, students work hard on learning English. For example, you can learn English through classes like Presentation and Teaching Methodologies for English-mediated Instruction.. Also, the program advisor, Dr. Andrew Komasinski, will give you useful advices. You can join GEL program even if you are not an English major.


Overseas Partner University

There are many partner Universities all over the world. You can study Korean, Russian, Chinese even German if you decide to go these countries.  Language skills you learn and friends you meet will become properties of your career and they will make your life more wonderful.
