Student Services Support
Studying abroad is what you make of it. However, even the most adventuresome student can benefit from a little friendly advice, a shoulder to lean on, and support now and then. The International Studies Center (ISC) is the first place students should turn to for assistance while at Musashi.
Musashi University also offers a Peer-to-Peer Opportunity. Musashi students are eager to welcome international students to campus and assist them in adjusting to life in Japan.
