Since the system may vary by college, graduate school, or your year in university, please ask your college or graduate school for details.

Tutoring System

International students enrolled at YNU can have tutors (Japanese or senior international students) for two years after arrival in Japan in the case of undergraduates and one year in the case of graduate students or research students.
Tutors help international students studying Japanese and their major field and give guidance and assistance on and off campus (accompanying to local government offices to take care of paperwork and looking for housing, etc.) If you would like to have a tutor should consult your advisor.
