The University of Tsukuba aims to cultivate human resources with a global view by promoting international exchange to improve academic standards. In order to accomplish this goal, we have established agreements with overseas universities and the United Nations University Institute of Advanced Studies and offer a variety of activities such as delegating students and faculties abroad, a credit transfer system and accepting faculties from abroad. We also further provide a support to the study for overseas students. In the Medical Branch including the Master’s Program of Medical Sciences, education and research exchanges are enhanced ties with University of Edinburgh in England, University of Bordeaux (Bordeaux 2) in France, University of Bonn in Germany, National Taiwan University in Taiwan and Vietnam National University, Ho Chi Minh City, in Vietnam.
