Orientation Program

Upon your arrival into Hiroshima, staff from the Office of International Exchange will pick you up at designated meeting points and take you to your accommodation.
After settling in your apartments, HUE student volunteers will take you around the campus and the HUE neighborhood as a part of orientation. They will show you where the local grocery stores, convenience stores, post office and banks are located, as well as how to ride a university shuttle bus.
Attendance to the Group Orientation is required for everyone. During the Group Orientation, you will receive information on how to register for classes, various school matters and rent payments, etc.

There will also be a one-day weekend tour to Downtown Hiroshima and/or to another point of attraction in the neighboring area. All STEP students will join this tour with Japanese students. You will have lunch in the city and visit the Hiroshima Castle, Peace Memorial Park, and shopping arcade. This will give you an opportunity to meet and make friends with Japanese students as well as other STEP students from different countries.
