GEfIL Abroad Program

Here are some examples of GEfIL Abroad Program.

In Year 3 and 4 of GEfIL, students have the opportunity to participate in carefully selected, existing abroad programs of top universities around the world, joint abroad programs with international top universities and other organizations, short-term internships, or volunteer work abroad. Thanks to the generous sponsorship of supporting companies, students will receive scholarships (up to a max. of 1 million Yen) towards the cost of their chosen abroad program.*

*Students suffering financial hardship might be eligible to apply for a  'Special Additional Scholarship'. Please consult our GLP Office for details.
