Based on our mutual exchange agreements with 12 universities located throughout the world, we are proud to offer full year and half year exchange study programs. Over the past 30 years, we have welcomed over 1,000 international exchange students from our partner institutions.

They say the way you spend your time during university days defines how your life turns out. With such high hope expectations and aspirations I chose this university. And I am glad to say it’s one of the best decision I made in my life. Being a foreign student I had fear of being left out and no confidence in my Japanese language, but kind friendly supportive students and teachers helped me to improve myself and move forward. I have never felt left out by anyone. The friendly environment and the lectures are the best thing of this university. There also are library where you can study with peace of mind, cafeteria to enjoy your time with friends. The club activities are the best thing that make you feel like home. Located right beside the station there are lot of things you can enjoy. From supermarkets, restaurant, game-center all within the reach by free bus. I say it’s the best place you can spend your time and get a lot in return. I am having an unforgettable experience in this university where I am treated as a family by everyone all I want to say is thank you very much Hakuoh for so much love and support.

I am so lucky to be able to come to Hakuoh University. I can enjoy my study abroad life in the quiet city of Oyama. At Hakuoh University, both teachers and classmates have been very enthusiastic in supporting us international students. One of my favorite memories was visiting a nearby high school, where I was able to lecture about my home country. Thanks to the hard work of the faculty and staff at Hakuoh University, I was able to receive several scholarships during my time in Japan.
Every day is very fulfilling, and getting such support and help in an unfamiliar city is a rare event. I love Hakuoh University, and I love everyone at this school.

Going to Hakuoh University for one year was a great experience. The staff are really nice and they’re always there when you need them. The students are really friendly and there are a lot of events to meet people. The classes are interesting and supportive so don’t be afraid to try and use your Japanese as much as you can. Oyama city, where the school is located, is perfect because it has everything from supermarkets to game centers, all within reach by free bus. If you feel like, you can take a day trip out to bustling Tokyo, as well as beautiful Nikko. Hakuoh University really provided an unforgotten experience! Thank you so much!
