Overview

Purpose of Learning Satellite

Through the courses offered by joint educational programs in collaboration between faculty members at Hokkaido University (HU) and overseas universities, students at HU and overseas universities have an opportunity to learn together. The programs aim to nurture talented individuals who have the ability to contribute to the resolution of global issues and to enhance the internationalization and quality of our educational programs in cooperation with faculty members at overseas universities. Furthermore, the development of joint educational programs (e.g., double-degree programs, cotutelle programs) and research collaborations with overseas institutions are expected.

Educational methods of Learning Satellite

Over the course of the program, students participate in classes consisting of a variety of lectures, including exercises, practical training, experiments and fieldwork, as well as classroom lectures. Students at HU are awarded credit from HU and those from overseas universities are awarded credit from HU or overseas universities.
Our students can experience intercultural interaction and a multicultural atmosphere by learning together with students from overseas universities through lectures and practical training offered by overseas universities. The experience motivates them to study abroad and go to graduate school.
