There are pick-up service from Sapporo Railway Sta. upon arrival, moving-in/check-in support at accommodation, resident registration support at ward office, and removal support if requested.
Administrative matters related to internship are handled by International Affairs Office of Engineering and CEED. Also, there is a HU student organisation SCII Students Committee of International Internship for communication encouragement with oversea internship students.
Although this depends on the time and period of internship and vacancy, they can stay at university accommodation for international students. However, the priority is offered to regular students.
Upon the completion of internship programme, a certificate is issued by the Director at CEED to all internship students both financed and non-financed by CEED.
