Guide for Meiji University International Exchange Student Program



International Student Center, Meiji University

Characteristics of the Student Exchange Program

 At Meiji University, Exchange Program nominees are required to have a certain level of Japanese language proficiency since most courses are offered in Japanese.

Basically, an advisory professor within the student's academic field will be assigned to each international exchange student. Each student has an interview with the advisory professor and decides their course plan at Meiji University.

Exchange students are required to participate in their advisory professor’s seminar classes, which are intensive and interactive classes consisting of about 10-20 students each. This enables the students to interact with Meiji professors and students in similar study areas.

The “Meiji Japanese Language Program” is offered for international exchange students. This program used to be the “Intensive Japanese Language Program”, a non-credit program, up to the 2010 academic year, and has become a regular course with credit from the 2011 academic year. This program enables the student to acquire the Japanese language skills necessary for university level study.

From the 2011 academic year, an English Track opened in the School of Global Japanese Studies. In this program, international students are able to learn Japanese culture & society etc, in English. Japanese language proficiency or previous Japanese experience is not required for applicants. (English proficiency will be required.) For details, please see the “English Track in the School of Global Japanese Studies”.

The Japanese language requirement may be eased under certain conditions at the School of Political Science and Economics. For details, please ask the International Student Center of Meiji University through your home institution.

All courses at School of the Global Japanese Studies are conducted in Izumi campus.

International exchange students at the School of Global Japanese Studies, whose Japanese language level is lower than JLPT Level.2, will be required to attend the Meiji Japanese Language Program (conducted at the Surugadai Campus) (Information for those enrolled at the English Track will be provided separately.)

Because we anticipate that there will be a large number of applications for the School of Global Japanese Studies, we ask that exchange students who designate that School as their first choice also indicate another of Meiji University’s Schools as a second choice.   Other Schools offer similar subjects taught in Japanese and there are an increasing number of subjects taught in English as well.  Please understand that in the event that applications for the School of Global Japanese Studies exceed the number of places available, you may be asked to register for your second choice.”



Becoming an Exchange Student at Meiji University

Required Japanese Language Proficiency (General Course)

To become an exchange student at Meiji University, you will need to be recommended through your institution as an exchange student nominee. Since most of the courses at Meiji University are offered in Japanese, you would need a certain level of Japanese language ability. All exchange students would need at least more than 300 hours of Japanese language studies. Otherwise, you would need to proof of your Japanese language competency through an official score of JLPT Level3 (N4) or a Meiji University Japanese language Test results administered at your home institution.

Prior to the application, you need to take the Meiji University Japanese Language Test at your institution if you have not obtained an official JLPT score. Meiji University will consider the test results and all other documents submitted. Successful applicants will then be admitted as exchange students to Meiji University.

In addition, please note that your Japanese language proficiency may make your registration conditional. If you are classified at higher than JLPT Level.1 (N1) after your arrival, you can make out your study plan which is focused on your specialty. If you are classified lower than JLPT Level.2, you can make out one which is focused on the “Meiji Japanese Language Program” or other alternative Japanese programs.

How to Get Enrolled into a Seminar or Course

Once you are officially accepted at Meiji, you will receive documents including a Letter of Acceptance etc. Upon your arrival, we will provide you a course syllabus which enables you to read and select from the courses offered. You will have an interview with your advisory professor and an academic officer of the school/department enrolled, and determine the courses that you are willing to take.

The first week is a probationary period where you attend courses you are interested in registering for. (Please note that some courses might not have a probationary period.)

The registration date depends on each department or school, so you must remember to ask the staff at your School’s office for the date of registration at the interview. If you fail to complete the registration, you will not be able to earn any credits.

At Meiji, students are required to register courses for the whole academic year at the beginning of the year (April). Please note that students who will be coming from April have to register the courses for the whole year(Spring semester/Fall semester) in April. For students coming from September, they will need to register at the beginning of each semester (September and April).

Also please note that your Japanese language proficiency level, or the department or School’s regulations may make your registration conditional.
