The Program

A program that will give your study abroad experience in Japan a feel of authenticity.

The University of Fukui is located in the city of Fukui, capital of Fukui Prefecture, on the Japan Sea coast of Japan.  Studying here provides the opportunity to experience the authentic, "hidden" Japan steeped in tradition, but with access to the bustling cities of Kyoto or Osaka in under two hours and Tokyo in three hours. The university itself is relatively small with a student body of about 5100. Small class sizes allow for a student friendly environment which encourages interaction with faculty. Rutgers students have been very successful in being hired as paid Interns at the City Hall, due to the history of exchange between Rutgers and Fukui dating back to 1870. Program Fact Sheet
