Student health and mental welfare are taken extremely seriously by the University. We have a medical center on campus, where students can receive a wide range of treatments, including internal medicine, orthopedics, psychiatry and dental treatment. In the case of more severe injuries or illnesses, we also have a large training hospital.
Bilingual Japanese and English counselling is available to all students, both through the Medical Center and at the International Student Center (which has counsellors fluent in Chinese and Korean also).
Students are required to have a yearly physical examination, which is provided free-of-charge by the University in conjunction with the Medical Center.
Students are required to pay into the National Health Insurance scheme. Under this scheme, ther government will cover 70% of of the costs of any medical treatments. This greatly reduces costs, with a visit to the dentist costing only a few hundred yen (a few dollars).
