All students at Kyushu University – including international students of any category – are well supported in maintaining their health and wellbeing as members of the campus community. Kyushu University’s Center for Health Sciences and Counseling (CHC) provides a variety of support for all campus members when any concern arises regarding their medical or health conditions or disability issues. General health check-ups, non-emergency infirmary care, medical advice, and first aid for minor injuries are provided free of charge for all campus members. The CHC operates several branch offices across all campuses, many of which are accessible within a short walking distance, especially for those living on campus.
Kyushu University is committed to helping to maintain and even promote the quality of all students’ lives comprehensively, and this objective includes their psychological wellbeing. For some international students, it could be challenging at times to smoothly adjust not only to their new learning environment on campus but also to some aspects of the broader Japanese culture they experience in daily life outside the classroom, especially if their home culture is drastically different from the Japanese counterpart.
In addition to infirmary healthcare, the CHC also offers free-of-charge counseling services for all international students studying on campus. The CHC’s well-experienced, clinical psychologists and licensed counselors are available to provide cross-cultural counseling services in English, Chinese, and Korean, as well as Japanese, with the students’ privacy being fully respected and protected.

Conveniently located at the center of the Ito Campus, Ito Clinic provides both campus members and local residents around the campus area with full medical treatment when necessary, mainly in general infirmary and psychosomatic medicine. The psychosomatic and psychiatric services are available by appointment, and patents may receive treatments in English if desirable A registered pharmacy is located just next door, where patients may go for medication immediately after receiving a prescription from the clinic.
Kyushu University also dedicates itself to assist incoming international students in smoothly starting the new chapter of their academic life as part of the campus community. The University’s dedication is exemplified in the comprehensive support Kyushu University International Student and Researcher Support Center – the Support Center, for short – provides for such students.
The Support Center consists of a team of administrative supporters who are well experienced in cross-cultural communication. They are stationed in offices at all of the university’s campuses so as to be readily accessible for international students of any programs and level of study. Each Support Center office serves as a ‘one-stop help desk’ to help international students meet many non-academic needs. Their comprehensive support begins with assigning incoming students’ pre-arrival procedures, including visa applications and transportation arrangements from the local airport to the campus of their destination if necessary. Other support includes, but is not limited to, assistance with on- and off-campus housing, residential registration at local public offices, health insurance application, student-to-student support arrangements, and much more.
