Spend a semester or year in Osaka, Japan! Osaka Gakuin University offers a wonderful program for international students, with intensive Japanese courses, Japanese culture courses, and content courses taught in English including fine arts, business, economics, literature, sociology, religion, environmental studies, and peace studies. The International Center pairs students with OGU Buddies and offers activities and excursions throughout the semester.
COURSES AND CREDITS
A list of the courses offered at Osaka Gakuin University is available at the course information link. Students applying to this program should plan to meet with the appropriate academic advisors to help determine course selection and to seek the necessary course approval(s).
All students will be registered by the Study Abroad Office as full-time students during their semester abroad, which is 12 hours for undergraduate students and 9 hours for graduate students. Undergraduate students must return with the equivalent of at least 12 hours of credit on their host university transcript (9 hours for graduate students). Students can take additional hours and are not limited to the minimum full-time requirement while abroad. All courses are graded on an ABCDF scale. There is no Pass/Fail.
Students have the options of living in a home stay, an OGU apartment (limited availability), or making arrangements independently. The home stay option has proven to be one of the most immersive and valuable experiences to former students, and we highly recommend the home stay program!
For the Osaka Gakuin University exchange, students are responsible for paying:
- Current, full-time, UM tuition (including non-resident fees, if applicable)
- UM Study Abroad fee (includes the cost for international health insurance)
- Housing costs (details and payment are usually handled between the student and the host university)
- Travel expenses, books and supplies, personal living costs, passport and visa fees (all the responsibility of the student)
Students must be in good academic and disciplinary standing to study abroad and must have a cumulative 2.5 GPA. Additional or more stringent requirements may apply depending on the program.
In general, financial aid will apply to UM study abroad programs. All students should review the study abroad information on the Financial Aid Office website. It is the student’s responsibility to meet with a financial aid advisor to discuss how aid packages apply to study abroad. Third party scholarships may also be available for specific programs, so students should discuss study abroad early and often with the Study Abroad Office and the Financial Aid Office.
For current tuition costs, the Office of the Bursar provides a tuition estimator.
