Application Method

Hokkaido University (HU) students do not have to submit applications on this website.
HU students just need to register for the HSI courses in the course registration period at the beginning of the semester/term. Course numbers required on course registration are available in “HU students Course Code” on each course page.


Courses will be provided as Inter-Faculty Classes for undergraduate students, and as Inter-Graduate School Classes for graduate students. See the Course List page for further course information. By clicking the title of each course, you can move to each course page where detailed information (course description, Time Table, etc.) is available. From April onwards, detailed information including course number and course venue will be available on the website.
Some courses will also be offered as specialized courses of the organizing undergraduate/ graduate schools. Detailed information will be available here from April onward.
You may count a HSI course toward your degree credit. For details, please refer to your student handbook or consult the academic affairs office of your undergraduate/ graduate schools.
