Okayama University, a globally oriented university, is an exchange destination for University College Utrecht students, located in Okayama, Japan.
Okayama University offers the Discovery program, which focuses on three core fields: Cultural Diversity and Communities, Solcial Innovation and Entrepreneurship, and Transdisciplinary Sciences for Global Sustainability.
We recommend going in Spring, since that semester aligns better with the UCU academic year. Do note that you will have to arrange for housing yourself between the UCU Fall semester and the start of the semester at Okayama.
2 students per semester
Fall Semester: End of September – mid-February
Spring Semester: End of March – mid-August
Your courses will focus on the three core fields: Cultural Diversity and Communities, Solcial Innovation and Entrepreneurship, and Transdisciplinary Sciences for Global Sustainability. More information on courses can be found here.

Okayama uses the letter grade system (A-F), just like UCU.
