Rent Subsidy Program for International Students
In 2021, we established the “Rent Subsidy Program” to financially support excellent newly enrolled international students and create an environment where they can concentrate on their studies.
Outline of Common Education
Half of the monthly rent (including utility cost, administrative expenses and common service fee) paid by international students will be subsidized for a certain period with a monthly limit of 27,000 yen.
The table below shows the number of eligible international students, the period and timing of grants, and the selection method.
|Eligibility||Maximum number of grantees||Period and timing of grants||Selection|
|Exchange Students||Number of students specified in the exchange agreement||Period specified in the exchange agreement.||None|
|Privately funded International Students(※)||
1st semester: 2 pers
2nd semester: 2 pers
4 pers in total per year.
6 months from the month of admission
1st semester: Apr. – Sep.
2nd semester: Oct. – Mar.
|If there are more applications than grants available, the grades in the student’s previous course of study are considered and only the top performers will be granted the subsidy.
(This will be calculated by assessment points according to the link to the attached sheet.)
※ An international student who has a “student visa” and is newly enrolled at PUK as a regular student. However, those who have received a scholarship from the Japanese or a foreign government or an International Postgraduate Scholarship for Research on Mercury of PUK are excluded.
Center for International Education and Exchange
Center for International Education & Exchange
The Center for International Education & Exchange (CIEE) provides a diverse array of support for both Japanese and international students. Especially for international students, we provide assistance in public procedures and daily life in Japan in both Japanese and English. We also issue to all international students an International Students’ Handbook providing information on campus life and various procedures needed to live in Japan.
The main part of the CIEE is the Global Lounge (GL). Inside the GL, students have access to various foreign language resources that can be accessed with the help of the CIEE coordinator. The GL also offers 30-minute one-on-one and small group tutoring sessions where students can discuss their foreign language learning strategies and goals with the GL coordinator. Many students who are interested in international exchange gather in the GL.
