International Christian University Course Information
International Christian University Credit Information
Students on a Spring Term exchange might be able to take a 3-credit, "JPS202 Community Service in Japanese Society" course. Class size is usually capped at 20 students so it is important to sign up for it as soon as possible.
Students on a Full-Year exchange (specifically during the Winter Term) might be able to take a 3-credit, "GES046 S2: Service Learning" course.
International Christian University Accommodation
Please note that the capacity for on-campus housing for students choosing only a 1-term exchange is limited. Off-campus housing might be the best option in this situation; a popular option is "Oak House", located 15 minutes by bicycle from campus. Usually, there are several exchange students living in Oak House with other Japanese students.
