The season for the Hokkaido Summer Institute (HSI) is approaching once again! More than 160 world-leading researchers from overseas will gather at Hokkaido University (HU) next summer for the HSI, which was established in 2016 and provides lectures with the university's faculty members for four months during the summer.
Last summer, more than 1,700 students joined the HSI to study a wide range of disciplines from literature to engineering. The university continues to expand the program, and for HSI 2019 there will be 139 courses (116 graduate courses and 23 undergraduate courses) from June 3rd to October 18th, 2019.
Tuition fee will be waived for students who enrolled in the program as exchange students from HU's partner institutions with which HU has concluded a memorandum of understanding on mutual tuition waivers.

All programs involve some degree of risk to participants. If you choose to source a provider on your own, please remember to do some research on them first and ensure that they are a legitimate organisation and that the product they offer will definitely meet your requirements. Students are therefore advised to undertake their own risk assessment before departure and any participation in these programs is at their own risk.
All students should register their travel with UNSW. You should also undertake a risk assessment before heading overseas. For more information see - How to prepare for departure.
