Japan-Korea Joint Program for Science & Engineering Students

The Japan-Korea Joint Program for Science & Engineering Students program is for exceptional Korean students who have graduated (or are about to graduate) high school and who intend to study engineering or science as undergraduates, and accepts them directly into Kanazawa University from the beginning of their preparatory education.

From selection to placement at Kanazawa University

Students hoping to participate in this program must first be recommended by their high schools, and then pass the first round of selections, which is done in Korea. The next round is done by the Japanese side, and determines the placement of the students at Kanazawa University. Students who are awarded a place then begin six months of preparatory education from March in Korea to learn Japanese, English, and take classes related to their future majors (mathematics, physics, chemistry). After arriving in Japan in October, they are placed in our International Student Center until March to continue their preparatory education, focusing on Japanese language and education in their majors, and then in April they enter the Faculty of Engineering and/or Science at Kanazawa University as first-year students. At Kanazawa University, five students were initially intended to be accepted the first year, but at present we have expanded to accept up to eleven over the two faculties.

Preliminary Education

At Kanazawa University, the students take preparatory classes with the support of the entire university, but primarily by the Faculties of Engineering and Science and the International Student Center, including Japanese language (including Japanese specific to their majors), field trips, a “homeroom,” and major-related classes. Japanese language education is divided into classes from the ISC's Integrated Japanese Language Program in the mornings, and classes specifically designed for this program in the afternoons. Once a month, students are taken on field trips into Kanazawa, where they are given opportunities to experience the traditional culture of Kanazawa, or visit local industry and businesses. In the major-related classes, we provide classes with the assistance of the College of Science and Engineering to bridge any gaps in learning between their Korean high school education and their future majors. In the “homeroom,” support is provided for both the students' academic and counseling needs.
