Bachelor degree at Hokudai

Admission to the bachelor's programs is based on the results of entrance examinations.

Hokudai campus

The campus of the educational institution is located in Sapporo. This opens up all the delights of life in a big city for students: a rich infrastructure, a large selection of entertainment, convenient transport, as well as more opportunities for internships or part-time jobs. However, for some students, such an abundance of opportunities can be distracting. University students have access to the library. It contains a collection of scientific papers, textbooks and fiction. Hokudai regularly invites foreign students to participate in exchange programs. For locals, this is a unique opportunity to get in touch with the cultures of other countries, meet representatives of different nationalities and make friends around the world.
