Long- and short-term study abroad programs

Study abroad programs provide students with highly effective opportunities to prepare for active careers in the global community. Meiji Gakuin has student exchange agreements with more than twenty foreign universities in Asia, Europe, North America and Oceania. The duration of these programs range from one term to a full academic year; all GTS students may apply to them.

You can get information on these programs from the Internaional Center.

The University of California

Meiji Gakuin’s largest exchange agreement is with the University of California which has 10 campuses. Twenty-five of our students can enroll at a UC campus for one year, and up to twenty-five UC students come to study at Meiji Gakuin every term. Through this partnership, you have an opportunity to study at Berkeley, UCLA, UC San Diego and other prestigious UC schools. Each campus has its own unique strengths and programs; you should speak with your academic advisor or the UC Program Coordinator at Meiji Gakuin to consider which UC campus might best for you. The International Center has detailed information on the campuses, the application process, and other materials.
