Study Environment

Japanese & Japanese Affairs

At SUi, in addition to the “Japanese” and “Japanese Affairs” courses conducted for students attached to the faculties, there are also other “Japanese Courses” available. These courses are designed to provide basic training to persons who want to learn Japanese from either an elementary or intermediate level. Please note, however, that because these courses are non-official courses, they do not offer regular academic credit. These courses are available at both the Hikone Campus and the Otsu (Ishiyama) Campus. Usually, new courses commence in April and October. Persons interested in taking such courses are asked to contact either the International Student Section (Hikone Campus), or the Exchange Student Office (Otsu Campus).


Learning Materials

Shiga University provides a wide variety of learning materials for international students to study both the Japanese language and Japanese culture. As much as possible, SUi seeks to provide various printed/audio-visual materials that are helpful to international students in their studies. If students have any requests regarding such materials, they should contact SUi staff.

Library In addition to its general collections, the Shiga University Library also has a collection for international students (called the “Ryugaku Corner”). Here, resources for international students learning Japanese as well as books introducing Japan are available. Furthermore, there is a non-loan collection of audio-visual materials including video cassettes, CDs, and DVDs, that may be used within the library. If students experience difficulty in finding materials within the library, they should call on library staff for assistance.
SUi SUi also carries materials for international students including books, video cassettes, CDs, and DVDs, etc. These materials are for people learning Japanese and those wanting to find information on Japan. Although the major part of this collection is made available through the “Ryugaku Corner” of Shiga University Library, newspapers and pamphlets are available at the SUi offices and in those rooms set aside for the use of international students.
