University News | June 01, 2023

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 349 courses from June to October and allows nearly 270 students from overseas universities and more than 1,000 Hokkaido University students to expand their knowledge of subjects the university specializes in.


We will offer 3 courses categories, Advanced Research Course, Global Liberal Arts Course, and HSI extension / professional program. 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 two courses of HSI 2023 titled “Fundamental learning of Japanese language and culture (STSI) in-person classes” and “Fundamentals in Scientific Writing 2023” 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.
