Looking Beyond the Gates

Gakushuin Women's College offers the friendliness and close attention of a small college, while still enabling students to take advantage of the benefits of a larger university. The diversity that is to be found at Gakushuin Women's College is not limited to its own student body, but extends to other universities in the area and abroad through its ties with Gakushuin University and the f-campus system, as well as its numerous academic exchange programs with foreign institutions.

International Students

The College encourages its own students to develop an international outlook through study outside of Japan, while simultaneously welcoming the enrollment of international students. The academic interests of our students who go abroad are often in such fields as intercultural communication, international relations, development studies, finance and marketing, etc.

Academic Exchange Programs

Gakushuin Women's College currently has official academic exchange programs with seventeen foreign institutions. Through these exchange programs, international students from the participating institutions study at Gakushuin Women's College for a period of up to one year, upon recommendation by the institution in which they are enrolled. Students at GWC who wish to study at one of the participating institutions should apply through the International Student Center.
