Matters to be noted in choosing non-English foreign languages

January, 2019


This is an instruction including important suggestions when choosing non-English foreign language courses you wish to take from "Survey on registration for foreign language courses" of UCARO.
Please carefully read the matters shown below and "Reference for Selecting a Second Language Subject" included in Student's Guide, issued in February, 2019, before registering language courses.
※Students of Department of Integrated Global Studies, School of Integrated Arts and Sciences, are required to fill out a form of "Pre-course Language Survey for Incoming Students" attached to the Student's Guide and submit the completed one.


・Please choose two different language courses you wish to study (other than English)
・Please be aware that if there is an error of required information, you may not be registered in your desired language courses.
・If you choose French, German, Chinese, Korean or Spanish, please also choose whether or not you want to take intensive language courses.
※Intensive language courses are intended for students desiring further study of their desired foreign languages, and are offered four times a week along with basic foreign language courses.
※Please note that, depending on the school/department, some students can select ONLY "No" in this survey. However, even if you answer "No" in this survey, it will be possible to take the intensive language courses after entering the university if you follow the prescribed procedure during the course registration period.
・For schools/departments in which registration in basic language courses is optional, if you will not take non-English foreign languages, please choose "I will NOT take any language courses because they are optional." However, incoming students of the Program of Health Sciences, School of Medicine, and the School of Pharmaceutical Sciences, are expected to register for non-English foreign language courses.
・For international students who will not take non-English foreign language courses because they will register for Japanese language courses, please choose "I will NOT take any language courses because I am an international student who will take ONLY Japanese language courses."
