Hokkaido Summer lnstitute(HSI), one of the largest summer schools in Japan, is a program that brings together world-leading researchers with proven educational and research records, and provides educational courses in cooperation with the Hokkaido University (HU) faculty members.
Hokkaido Summer Institute offers learning in three formats:
- On-campus Course (face-to-face)
- eHSI Course (online)
- Recurrent Education Course (HSI for adults)
The medium of instruction at HSI is English. This provides international students with a stress-free learning environment without having to worry about language barriers, and also creates a special opportunity for Japanese students, who can participate in classes taught by internationally acclaimed researchers.
HU has high expectations that the HSI students cultivate a better understanding of other cultures and improve communication skills through exchanges with researchers and students from other countries. Off-campus events are also planned to let the participants enjoy Hokkaido’s beautiful summer.
