Osaka University International Certificate Program (OUICP)

Osaka University International Certificate Program (OUICP) is an interactive, hybrid educational program consisting of both online and study abroad courses that makes effective use of Osaka University (OU) ASEAN Campuses. Carried out over the course of 9~10 months, OUICP (Outbound) sends Osaka University students to study at one of OU ASEAN Campuses, while OUICP (Inbound) invites students from OU ASEAN Campuses for a short-term study abroad experience at Osaka University. Osaka University issues a certificate upon successful completion of the program on a specific field with 6 to 8 credits.
