(6) UMAP Participating Universities in Japan

In March 2004, the UMAP Board Meeting decided to make and exchange the List of UMAP Participating Universities which show interest in using UCTS as a conversion scale for the credit transfer among the member countries.

In Japan, 85 universities requested the listing by the invitation of UMAP Japan National Committee through each composed association (the Japan Association of National Universities (JANU), the Japan Association of Public Universities (JAPU), and the Federation of Japanese Private Colleges and Universities Associations (FJPCUA)), and the List was distributed to all member countries. Afterwards, UMAP Participating Universities have been added accordingly, and as of February 2017, 103 Japanese universities included in the List show special interest in student exchange through UMAP framework and use of UCTS.

 

【Definition of UMAP Participating Universities】

  1. Host and Home universities need to ensure credit recognition prior to student exchange. Slight change will be allowed after starting class.
  2. Use of UCTS (UMAP Credit Transfer Scheme) as a conversion scale for credit is necessary in principle.
  3. Selection of courses and universities depends on each university.
  4. The List includes the universities which have a plan to make use of UCTS for their student exchange and have put into practice as a pilot project.
