College of Asia Pacific (CAP)

The College of Asia Pacific (CAP) is a short-term study abroad and international education collaborative program for Japanese and international students.
Participants will study with university students from the Asia Pacific region to learn about common issues in the wider Asia region through collaborative learning in the form of problem-based learning (PBL) and team-based learning (TBL). The participants will learn firsthand differences in the way in which people perceive and solve problems as the program promotes intellectual exchanges among students with different cultural and social backgrounds.
With a view to studying abroad for a longer period of time in the future, students will have the opportunity to join the international community and take a first step toward becoming a global citizen.
