Exchange Program Okayama (EPOK) is a program organized by Okayama University between its EPOK partner universities 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 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 offering students an environment for freedom, exploration 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 amongst Japanese and interact and experience first-hand life and living in Japan.

All EPOK students are accommodated at the Okayama University Shared House. This dorm is conveniently located just five minutes from the Tsushima Campus of Okayama University (main campus). EPOK students share a unit with a Japanese student and two other international students.
