Intercultural and Global OITA Based Education (IGLOBE) Fall 2020


Oita University offers the Intercultural and Global OITA Based Education (IGLOBE) course of study for exchange undergraduate and postgraduate students. The program aims to enhance Japanese language skills while providing learning opportunities related to Japanese culture and society as well as that of Oita and its surrounding communities.

IGLOBE’s mission has three main goals for its students: 1) acquisition of more advanced language skills via structured academic Japanese language classes; 2) authentic Japanese life experiences in local communities, and 3) deepened knowledge of modern and traditional Japanese culture and society as a whole.

IGLOBE offers international and global perspectives through a variety of classes in the areas of social media, education, economics, applied engineering and science, sustainability, and popular culture. Participating international students will take Japanese language courses and other Japanese studies offerings from Global Education and Intercultural Advancement Center (GAIA).

Based on their language proficiency, international students may also be able to take general education classes as well as specialization courses offered at each faculty alongside domestic Oita University students. In addition to GAIA classes, additional classes are offered in Japanese, English, or an integration of both.

Students will receive credit at the end of each term, with credit transfer rules based on students’ home university regulations.
