Descriptions of ESP


Qualifications

The terms and conditions of ESP vary depending on the partner universities. Below are some of the basic qualifications. For further information, please contact SUi staff.

Qualification: Regular undergraduate/graduate students
Period: One semester or two semesters: not longer than one year.
Tuition: As a principle, students do not need to pay for tuition at the partner university.
However, tuition for the affiliated language institutions, etc. is not covered by this program and should be paid by the students. Also, in the cases where lessons or individual training are given especially to Shiga University students, they may be asked to pay for such lessons/training. Travel and living expenses should be paid by the students.
Credits: There is a credit transfer system available for students going abroad on ESP. (Note: Not all credits can be transferred.)
Scholarships: Scholarships provided by Japan Students Services Association (JASSO) are available for students going abroad on ESP. For information, contact SUi staff.
Language Skills: The students who wish to study at universities in English-speaking countries should submit TOEFL scores or other transcripts of English proficiency tests to prove their level of language skills. If the scores are not up to the required level, students should first enroll in affiliated institutions and study English until their ability reaches the standard sufficient to pursue studies at faculties/graduate schools at partner universities.
Even in non English-speaking countries, people often communicate in English. It is strongly recommended to study English hard before you depart.
