Special Auditing Students (International Students)

This provision allows for students who come to Kyoto University under inter-university or inter-departmental exchange agreements to attend classes at the university. The subjects taken by students in the Faculty of Engineering under this system can be counted towards academic credits needed for graduation at the university in which students are enrolled.

As a rule, applicable classes are held in Japanese, but special auditing students can also take part, together with other Kyoto University students, in the Kyoto University International Education Program (KUINEP), which provides lectures in English.

Since all procedures are handled by the responsible officers at Kyoto University and the partner school, applications by aspiring overseas students made directly to Kyoto University are not accepted. Please check whether the school in which you are enrolled has an exchange agreement with Kyoto University and if so, check the details of this agreement.
