International Student Support

Supporter System for International Students

The Supporter System

The system was designed for peer student supporters to give newly arrived international students peer- to-peer extracurricular assistance. This assistance contributes to improving the residential /college life of international students, and it is implemented within a designated period under the guidance of an academic advisor and administrative staff in charge.

International students who meet the necessary requirements can also become a supporter of other international students. Ask the administrative office of your school for further information.
