[International exchange program in Japan] UEFers have another chance to “study abroad”


With the view to building international bridges and giving opportunities for students to absorb the educational “quintessence” of advanced nations, especially Japan. The student exchange program between UEF and University of East Asia (UEA) - Japan in the upcoming spring semesters of the academic year 2021- 2022 is a chance to hold an “abroad” ticket and explore interesting things about the “Land of the Rising Sun”.

Don’t miss this chance if you are a big fan of Japanese cultures


This year, there are 2 slots available in the student exchange program at UEA. 

To be eligible for the student exchange program, students must meet the following requirements:

- All students majoring in the Japanese Language except freshmen can be eligible for enrolment; 

- Current cumulative GPA must be at least 3.0 out of 4 point scale;

- Candidates must achieve a Japanese-Language Proficiency level of at least N2 or equivalent.

According to the study plan, exchange students will start studying at UEA in April 2022 and this journey will last 6 months.
