Furthering the Liberal Arts


Through agreements concluded with 71 universities in 23 countries (as of June, 2017), ICU students can study for one year at out partner institutions. Under the same agreements, ICU also accepts students from those universities to study at ICU. Approximately 150 places available for study abroad and ICU expects that around one in four students will take part in the program.

Fruitful study abroad involves taking the same classes in specialized subjects as local university students, and for that reason it is necessary to have the appropriate level of English proficiency. Consequently, the usual procedure for students is to apply themselves properly to the English Liberal Arts (ELA) program until their second year and commence their study abroad in the autumn semester of their third year.

Students taking part in this exchange program remain enrolled at ICU while they study at the overseas university for one year (three ICU terms). As a general rule, students pay regular ICU tuition fees but are exempt from fees at the university abroad.

Other expenses are borne by the student, and the costs required for such studies vary with the particular destination. Credits earned at such institutions, a maximum of 40 credits, are recognized as part of the credit unit requirements for graduation from ICU. As a result, it is possible to study abroad and still graduate within four years.
