number of exchange students accepted. In that case, 2020 Fall enrolled
students whose admissions were postponed have priority. If admission of
studnets in Spring Semester 2021 is allowed,we require the students to
meet the following conditions.
①The Japanese government permits the entry from the foreign country to
Japan by the start of class in April 2021.
②If needed, isolation measures are completed by the start of class in
April 2021.
Lodging expenses in a place other than Kagoshima city for isolation must
be paid by the student.

* 2021 Spring Semester Exchange Program is sometimes canceled by a
judgement of Kagoshima University by the situation.

*Currently, Kagoshima University does not offer scholarships (including
JASSO)for exchange students. Please understand that the students have to
prepare their own living expenses.
They need atleast70,000-80,000yen/month for living in Kagoshima. There
