Achievements / Career


In this program launched in AY 2014, the number of students dispatched from Hokkaido University to Russian Far East partner universities increased from 5 in AY 2014 to 27 in 2015 and 35 in 2016.
The number of students dispatched from Hokkaido University was steady with 34 in AY 2017. However, it can be said that there is a steady need among Hokkaido University students to participate in the RJE3 program as 46 students joined in this program including dispatch to Russian partner universities in AY 2017 compared to 12 students joined in this program in the first academic year. Also, there seems to be an increasing need among Hokkaido University students to study in Russia as more students express the hope to study in Russia for at least three months. Students have been dispatched in even numbers to the five Russian Far East partner universities – all institutions with their own distinct
characteristics – based on a system that can meet the diverse needs of students.
Although only 25 students were dispatched from Hokkaido University in AY 2018 due to change of student support and way of selection of students, the number of students dispatched from Hokkaido University to Russian Far East partner universities through this 5 years have summed up more than expected number of achievement at the time of start of the program.
Based on a system that can host 5 students each from Russian Far East partner universities, the number of students hosted by Hokkaido University has remained stable between 24 and 25 annually except the year when the RJE3 Program was launched. Hokkaido University has dispatched a total of 126 students and hosted a total of 132 students as of the end of AY 2018. This indicates that exchanges between Japanese and Russian students have been boosted by the RJE3 Program. Details about the dispatched and hosted students in each academic year are outlined below.
