Hokkaido University established the Hokkaido Summer Institute (HSI) in 2016. The HSI is a program that brings together world-leading researchers with proven educational and research records from all around the globe to Hokkaido, and provides educational courses in cooperation with the university’s faculty members.
This summer, the HSI is offering 120 courses from June to September and allows more than 400 students from overseas universities and 1,100 Hokkaido University students to expand their knowledge of subjects the university specializes in.
On June 4th, the first three courses of HSI 2018 titled “Leading and Advanced Biological and Polymer Chemistry and Engineering I,” “Advanced Marine Biotechnology and Microbiology I,” and “Introduction to PARE I” will kick off the summer. Other courses focus on subjects in the humanities, social sciences, sciences, engineering, agriculture and more, each including a unique component, such as hands-on training or field work.
