University-screened apartments

Seijoh University (SU) has screened a number of apartments near the university for students who will be entering the university.

SU has screened apartments that provide a safe environment at a low price with low move-in costs. Consider the following points.

Working together with real estate companies, SU looked for reasonably-priced places near the university that could provide a safe, study-friendly environment. In addition, we limited the list to apartments within walking distance of the university. Even in times of emergency students can get to the university without using public transportation.

In order to be listed with the university, apartments must meet five of the following conditions.

  • • Rent under ¥45,000 a month (under ¥50,000 with utilities)
  • • Within 4.5 km (about 2.8 miles) from the university (within an hour's walk in cases of emergency)
  • • Convertible to furnished and include large-electrical appliances (rent + ¥6,000/mth)
  • • No deposit
  • • No interior-restoration charges [Some places levy a charge to restore the apartment to the original condition regardless of whether any damage was done.]
  • • Includes tenant's insurance
  • • No broker's fee
  • • Offers a tenant's safety service (15,000 yen incl. tax) (2 years)
    The service provides for example:
    • • a telephone number that authorized persons (for example parents) can use to check the safety of the tenant
    • • 24-hour emergency support (e.g. a leaky water pipe, locked out of apartment etc.)

Employment assistance

Seijoh University provides assistance for international students seeking employment in Japan or entrance to graduate school.

  1. 1. The international student orientation in both the first and second semester in each of the four years provides: 1) a reminder about important dates for applying for employment or graduate school; 2) information about qualifying for various certification examinations and employment events; and 3) information about staying safe during student days.
  2. 2. At the beginning of summer, the university offers "Graduate School Guidance for International Students" for the third- and four-year students hoping to continue on to graduate school. This guidance includes help in graduate school entrance examinations.
  3. 3. The curriculum includes some useful courses. In "Career Support I and II for international students" in the second semester of the second year, students will strengthen Japanese-language skills in order to obtain the N1 ranking in the Japanese Proficiency Test. In "Career Support III for international students" in the second semester of the third year, students gain knowledge and information necessary when seeking employment in Japan; students think about life after graduation, develop objectives and form plans of action as well as strengthen their Japanese proficiency.
  4. 4. The employment assistance office offers not only information about employment opportunities for international students and job fairs, but also guidance in how to compose a Japanese-style curriculum vitae or resume and prepare for an interview.

International Student Council

All international students are members of the International Student Council and elect an executive committee composed of a Chair, Vice-chair, Finance Director, Secretary and Member-at-large.

The International Council plans events and provides support for international students.

For example, at the annual University festival, it puts together a forum featuring presentations by international students for the general public and sponsors an international exchange party afterwards. In addition, it plans and executes a welcoming party for new international students as well as a bus trip. The Council leaves many students with lasting memories of their stay at Seijoh University.

Activities can be viewed under "New Information".
