In this innovative program supported by the Japanese Ministry of Education, Canadian and Japanese undergraduate students take courses with an emphasis on multiculturalism and international studies to develop the skills they need to be global citizens and the leaders of tomorrow. This program provides a unique opportunity for Queen's students to meet and interact closely with Japanese students from KGU and other Canadian students (from Mount Allison University, King's University College - Western University, and the University of Toronto).
Programs that take place in Japan are subsidized through generous funding provided by the Japanese government.
Upon successful completion of the program requirements, students will receive an official Cross-Cultural College Certificate issued by Kwansei Gakuin University.
Tuition and Financial Assistance
The Global Career Seminar and Global Internship are both 3.0 credit courses at KGU and individually are considered equivalent to a 3.0 unit course at Queen's University. Queen’s University students pay standard tuition fees to Queen’s for the courses taken through the KGU CCC, in accordance with fees that are posted on the Office of the University Registrar website. Students are assessed tuition according to their home faculty/school. Please visit the Office of the University Registrar website for details. Students may decide to drop one of their 3.0 unit Winter term courses in order to count the Global Career Seminar (Canada) course as one of their Winter term courses.
