- International Exchange
Geiko Global International Exchange Portal Site
Ever the outward-looking institution, Kyushu University aims to equip its students with an international mindset. As such, the Faculty of Design, the undergraduate School of Design, and Graduate School of Design are all actively engaged in international exchange in both research and education.
In October 1980, we signed our first exchange agreement with The University of Queensland as the Kyushu Institute of Design, and we have been proactively promoting international exchange ever since. We have signed memorandums of understanding for student exchange with many universities abroad, opening up new avenues for study abroad for our students. We hope that experiencing foreign cultures will help students progress academically and nurture an international mindset in the process.
Based on these agreements, we exchange students and academic faculty, facilitate academic cooperation and joint research, and welcome a large number of international students to the School of Design. We also hold international symposiums and research workshops that contribute to a more interconnected world. There’s always plenty of interaction between international students and Kyushu University students and academic faculty at Ohashi Campus.
Partner institutions & Credit transfer system
Partner institutions denoted with an asterisk (*) below are schools with which we have concluded a department-wide international exchange agreement and include academic cooperation in addition to for-credit student exchange programs. The credit transfer system allows students to count credits earned at their host university as course credits toward graduation for a study abroad period of up to one year.
