Shizuoka University's Asia Bridge Program (ABP) offers an undergraduate (bachelor's degree) program and a master's degree program. In the undergraduate program, candidates are recruited from India, Indonesia, Thailand, and Vietnam for an overseas or in-Japan admissions screening process. The ABP undergraduate curriculum provides all first-year students with an initial six months of intensive Japanese language training which prepares them to study in their major fields with Japanese students. In the master's degree program, students from the 16 designated Asian regions and countries study at the Graduate School of Integrated Science and Technology. The degree is offered in English, and the students are trained to be the world's top scientists and engineers.
