Minami-Senri International Plaza
A facility for promoting internationalization through the concept of “cross cultural exchange through learning together.”
Kansai University launched Minami-Senri International Plaza in April 2012 as part of its international initiative, offering a location for both educational facilities and a dormitory for overseas students attending the Japanese Language and Culture Program Preparatory Course (Bekka).
This plaza aims at not only providing opportunities for both international students and regular students of Kansai University to share interactive experiences, but also to involve local residents of the Minami-Senri area under the concept of “cross-cultural communication for learning together.” Some regular students from the university also live in the dormitory as Resident Assistants in order to give support to the daily lives of international students.
Students at Bekka learn the Japanese language, as well as information literacy, through usage of ICT and the e-learning system inside and outside classes. For this purpose, the classroom building is fully equipped with Wi-Fi, along with the terrace, patio, and communal areas of the dormitory.
