The tutorial system ensures that every student will follow a professor, who will guide your thesis and make suggestions for your graduation thesis, which is very important for graduate students. My program also has some exchange programs. I participated in one of the exchange programs and transferred to the Germany Sport University of Cologne. During my stay in Germany, the Waseda GSSS, my professor and peers all gave me a lot of support, so I can study and live in GSU without any worries. This is an incredible experience for me !
