Exchange Program Okayama (EPOK) is a program organized by Okayama University that offers students an opportunity to study in Japan. Through this program, EPOK encourages students to learn and understand Japanese culture, customs and social backgrounds. Classes are offered to EPOK students in English and Japanese. Okayama University and EPOK provides students the ideal setting for studying abroad; one that nurtures education and learning while at the same time offers students an environment for freedom, growth and experience.


By enrolling in the program, students are not only given the opportunity to study at one of the largest universities in Japan, but they are also given the opportunity for personal experience and self-growth. Students will live and interact amongst the Japanese people, and they will experience first-hand what life and living in Japan is like.
