Hokkaido University is one of the top universities in Japan. Established in 1876, it follows the philosophies of "Frontier Spirit," "Global Perspectives," "All-round Education," and "Practical Learning." Its population of 11,000 undergraduate students and 3,500 graduate students is dispersed over two campuses: one in Sapporo, and the other in Hakodate. The large main campus is widely viewed as the most beautiful campus in Japan.
Sapporo is the fourth-largest city in Japan and the largest city on the island of Hokkaido. The birthpace of miso ramen and home to historical sites such as the Miaynomori Art Museum and the Hokkaido Shrine, Sapporo is an ideal city to immerse yourself in Japanese culture and student life.

Exchange fees are determined by UW residency status: in-state students pay an exchange fee equivalent to in-state tuition, and out-of-state students pay an exchange fee equivalent to out-of-state tuition. The exchange fee and UW Study Abroad fee are charged to your UW account and due by the UW tuition deadline for your term(s) of study abroad.
