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 over 270 courses from June to October and allows nearly 150 students from overseas universities and more than 2,000 Hokkaido University students to expand their knowledge of subjects the university specializes in.
From the year of 2022 we will offer 3 courses, On-Campus course (Face-to-face), eHSI course (Online), and newly established “Recurrent Education course (HSI for Adults). Participants can choose a course which meets their convenience. Many of the courses are open to both students and adults.
On June 1st, the first three courses of HSI 2022 titled “Environmental Health and Sustainable Development Goals I”, “Advanced Physics and Technology of Materials – introduction -”, and “Fundamental learning of Indian language and culture (STSI)” 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.

*Invited lecturers may offer classes remotely due to COVID-19 restrictions. We will update the course page once the information becomes available.
