Program Description:
Musashi University

Overview
Musashi University strives to be innovative and active in developing connections to the international community and is gradually and purposefully expanding its international network. As a small private institution, Musashi now enrolls approximately 4,000 students and offers courses in East Asia Studies and Japanese Language to visiting students. The intimate campus environment affords students the opportunity to forge close relationships with classmates and faculty alike. 


Location
Tokyo is the epitome of the word dichotomy. With thousand year-old temples just around the corner from modern skyscrapers, even the experienced traveler will find something to discover in the world’s largest metropolitan area. From its humble beginning as a tiny fishing village, Tokyo has now become a city on the leading edge of business and technology.

Housing and Meal Plan
Students live with other international students in Rikko Kaikan Dorm, which is an off-campus residence hall located within a 15-20 minute walk to Musashi University. Students will have a single room, and will share bathroom, kitchen and laundry facilities with other students. Students are housed on a first come, first served basis, therefore we highly recommend that students seeking to study at Musashi contact the Office of International Education as soon as possible.

Health and Safety

All students will travel abroad with GeoBlue international health insurance, which is purchased by the College. Students will receive an electronic and hard copy of their insurance card, and should a doctor's visit (commonly referred to as hospital visit abroad) be necessary, they should reach out to their on-site study abroad coordinator/resident director. Students will be required to contact GeoBlue prior to their appointment, unless of course in the case of an emergency, and should follow the procedures outlined here. 

Students are also encouraged to register themselves in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP), a free service provided by the U.S. government to U.S. citizens traveling abroad. STEP allows Americans abroad to receive updates from the nearest embassy or consulate and allows the Department of State to better assist you in an emergency.

Visa Application Information

U.S. Citizens
Students are required to obtain a student visa from the Japanese government. Your passport must be valid for at least 6 months after your expected departure date from Japan, and it will physically remain at the Consulate until your student visa is approved. Students should consult the Consulate General's website to obtain a student visa application, a list of requirements, and to verify the application process and timetable; students may have the option to apply by mail, or may find an in-person appointment at the nearest Consulate is required. 


Non-U.S. Citizens
Non-U.S. citizens should verify entry requirements for Japan. As these requirements vary based on citizenship, non-U.S. citizens may not be permitted to travel to Japan without a visa or outside of their visa dates. Also, visa fees for non-U.S. citizens may differ so please be sure to check your specific consulate's website for the most up to date information.
