International Partners (Buddy System)

For Regular (Degree Seeking) Students

The International Partner system was created in 2003 for the purpose of helping new international students become accustomed to their new environment and surroundings by introducing them to one or two current KGU students.

International Partners have volunteered to help new international students with the various problems or concerns that they may have. If you have any concerns or problems, please feel free to consult with the International Partner that you have been paired with. As a general rule, International Partners have signed up to help you for the first two months of your stay in Japan. Please use this opportunity to make friends and meet new people.
