At Hokkaido University, there is more to student life than just lectures and tutorials. Abundant opportunities await international students to participate in the many activities available on campus. There are over 250 clubs and societies to choose from, and students can participate in sporting activities, visit the university’s museum, attend university festivals, or just relax with friends in one of the many eateries in between lectures. There are so many opportunities for students to obtain new experiences and to make new friends. The diversity of opportunities available means that every student can find something that suits them, and meet like-minded people who share their interests.
