Timetable  <updated November 5>

  • Timetable
  • Hosei University will use the classrooms in the Fujimizaka building as a vaccination center. While these classrooms are temporarily unavailable, our classes that have been affected by this will be held in a substitute classroom from Monday September 27 to Saturday October 2 (i.e. the week in which GIS classes will be held on campus).
    The list of substitute classes will be posted on above, but do check with your instructor before class as this information might change. Sometimes it will be necessary for instructors to change buildings between consecutive classes. We ask for your understanding that due to this they may arrive late. Please also familiarise yourself with the location of these substitute classrooms as they may be in buildings unfamiliar to you.

GIS Application for Online Attendance

Students who wish to attend online during the Fall semester due to health issues or immigration restrictions may request to do so by using the university form (you will see the link posted on the front page of Hoppii).

If you have other important personal issues that are not related to underlying diseases or immigration, you may use the GIS online attendance application form. Following the same process as the Spring semester, you should apply online, stating clearly your reasons for wishing to do so. Even if you got permission in spring you will need to reapply for the new semester. Such requests should be made through the official form and not via individual instructors.

Applying for Seminars (starting from spring semester 2022) <updated September 20>

Spring semester entrants can take seminars from the third year. Fall semester entrants can take seminars from the spring semester of the second year.
If you want to join a seminar from the 2022 spring semester, please check the website below. You can find videos of each seminar, which students have created to give you an insight into what kind of things you will cover, the atmosphere, etc.

At GIS, middle and high school teacher’s licenses (in English) can be obtained by students who enrolled at Hosei University up until the 2020 academic year. However, the teacher’s license program has been abolished for 2021 entrants. Therefore, the teacher’s license can’t be obtained even if a student takes a GIS course as a special register student (科目等履修生) after graduating. Students who wish to obtain a teacher’s license (limited to students who entered university up to the 2020 academic year) must obtain the necessary credits for teaching before graduation.
If a student has been studying abroad from their 4th year, they can obtain the teacher’s license when they graduate if all necessary courses have been completed before graduating.
