Division of On-Site Education
This division offers the following educational programs.
Students practice methods of on-site education and research based on the experience of fieldwork conducted at field stations in various countries. With its own manual of on-site education methods, the Graduate School of Asian and African Area Studies has developed a study program that enables students to have experiences abroad while respecting their initiative as much as possible. The Center for On-Site Education and Research then shares the experience and know-how gained with other departments and institutes at Kyoto University.

Students give research presentations, and faculty of Kyoto University and overseas partner universities, and people from international organizations, NPOs, etc. who have been active in various parts of the globe, give on-site lectures and lead on-site seminars. Each school deals with themes that are of close relevance to the locality where the school is held.
