OVERSEAS FOREIGN LANGUAGE TRAINING PROGRAM
While expanding the number of partner universities that students can attend for foreign-language training during spring and summer breaks, we are striving for greater differentiation among destinations to provide students with diverse study-abroad opportunities. Partners include Montana State University (USA), the University of Alberta (Canada), the University of Leeds (England), the University of Freiburg (Germany), Riga Technical University (Latvia), Massey University (New Zealand) and additional destinations in the Americas, Europe, Southeast Asia and other locations are being planned. The program not only immerses students in a foreign language, but also provides them with an opportunity to experience the unique culture of the host country.
