Exchange Program Okayama (EPOK) is a program organized by Okayama University between its EPOK partner universities that offers students an opportunity to study in Japan. Through this program, EPOK encourages students to learn and understand Japanese culture, customs and social backgrounds. Classes are offered in English and Japanese. Okayama University and EPOK provides students the ideal setting for studying abroad; one that nurtures education and learning while at the same time offers students an environment for freedom, growth and experience.
By enrolling in the program, students are not only given the opportunity to study at one of the largest universities in Japan, but they are also given the opportunity for personal experience and self-growth. Students will live and interact amongst the Japanese people, and they will experience first-hand what life and living in Japan is like.
All EPOK students are accommodated at the Okayama University Shared House. This dorm is conveniently located just five minutes from the Tsushima Campus of Okayama University (main campus). EPOK students share a unit with a Japanese student and two other international students. School library, computer laboratories, shops, restaurants and various forms of entertainment are all easily accessible.
The Institute of Global Human Resource Development offers consultation and guidance to all EPOK students. In case that any of them should have any questions or concerns, the Institute of Global Human Resource Development will always be available.
For almost two decades, EPOK and Okayama University have strived to encourage the understanding of various cultures around the world. EPOK exists today so that students can have an ideal opportunity not only to pursue academics around the world, but also to promote goodwill amongst all people.
