Call for Participation in 2022 Faculty and Staff Skill Improvement Training

This year, we plan to hold 2 courses face-to-face and 5 courses online.
Please join us.

6/30 (Thu) Application deadline

Overview of the business

 As the globalization of higher education accelerates, such as the enhancement of support for international students and the promotion of collaborative projects with overseas universities, the English proficiency of university faculty and staff members is indispensable as a basic ability.
In addition, international students from many countries and regions have their own cultural backgrounds, and in order to communicate smoothly, it is essential to understand customs, social norms, religions, etc. beyond language.
For this reason, the University Consortium Kyoto aims to raise the level of practical skills and increase motivation to improve skills by conducting training to improve English proficiency that allows case studies assuming various situations and training to learn about cultures outside the English-speaking world.
