Purpose of introducing the quarter system
Ehime University has been offering the “Ehime University International Student Exchange Program” since the 2008 academic year, which is expected to improve educational effects by enabling students to study more intensively and to bring out their active learning attitude, facilitate short-term study abroad and internships in Japan and overseas for two to three months, and develop flexible educational activities and improve international fluidity. A quarter system has been introduced (in Common Education, the Faculty of Law and Letters, the Faculty of Collaborative Regional Innovation, and some of the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Engineering).
Overview of the Quarter System
The quarter system at the University is a variant of the semester system, in which the year is divided into two semesters, the first semester and the second semester, and credits are awarded for each semester. September at the end of the first semester and March at the end of the second semester.
