    I am a sophomore at University of Science and Technology Beijing, major in material science. I would like to enroll in life at Hokkaido University as an exchange student and experience the normal but different life as a common japanese underguaduate student heartfully. After searching your wedsite about international affairs and exchange student admissions, I found myself are just fit the eligibility of Special Audit Student (For Undergraduate Students) except the language. I have prepared japanese language for month but still miss the JLPT level N2 in December, which is the only chance to get the grade befor the deadline in 2017. I have noticed that there is another official test called JTESE which I can promise to pass LevelC in January. I don’t know if this is enough as the substitute of JLPT level N2, if is not , what should I prepare to catch the program of 2017-2018. That is the only chance in my college life, and I would like to try anything to fufill my dream.

    It would be appreciated if you can offer an email that I can contact to.

    Dear officer,
    I am an international student studying in University of Technology Sydney, mastering in Information Technology, and I would like to seize the chance to exchange to Hokkaido University.
    Could you please send a list of courses that related to IT field, better with descriptions in English version?
    Further, what should I provide if I would like to take classes taught in Japanese but not in English, which I think I can have more choices of course selection?

    Best wishes and looking forwards,
    Ziyuan Deng

    Good day Sir/Ma,
    I am a 4th year medical student in Ebonyi State University, Abakaliki, Nigeria. I want to know if it will be possible to transfer credits into the 4th year class in the Hokkaido university school of medicine. I have recently passed my 2nd MBBS Exam, a professional Examination taken in preclinical medicine which if you pass then you are qualified to move into clinical medicine. I also recognise the fact that high Japanese language proficiency is required, I can enroll in for Advanced Japanese language courses. I am so much interested in doing my clinical studies at Hokudai. I would appreciate a positive response from you. Thanks
