Kumamoto University's Short-Term Exchange Programs are designed for students who are enrolled full time at a university abroad and who have foreign citizenship. The programs offer undergraduate foreign students who are interested in the Japanese language, Japanese and Asian society and culture, advanced science and technology, and interactions with foreign students the chance to study abroad for up to a year in Japan while still retaining their full-time status at their home universities. The university also hopes that the programs will promote exchange between university students from foreign countries and Japanese university students.
