Planning on studying abroad at Rikkyo University in the near future? In this post I talk about my experience going through orientation for new international students at Rikkyo University in Tokyo, Japan. Some of this may change in the future, but it should give you an idea of what to expect for your orientation. Overall, some of the information was common sense, but much of it proved very useful during my time in Japan.
Other than location, the two RUID dorms (Asakadai and Shiki) are almost exactly the same. However, there are some differences between the RUID and RIR dorms. As for Comfort Ikebukuro, I don’t much about it. I didn’t even know it existed until it was mentioned on some of the papers in the welcome packet.
Getting my visa application in the mail was my top priority as soon as I got my welcome packet with my Certificate of Eligibility. Honestly, doing my visa application wasn’t that difficult.
Yesterday I received my long awaited welcome packet. It contained almost all the information I had been just dying to know. Let me tell you, it was a lot of information, too much to put into one blog entry, so this post as well as the next few will cover everything I received.
