Voices from Students

(1) Ms Eriko Saito (Completed EU Studies Undergraduate Diploma Programme 2015 Fall)
Affiliation at the time of completion of the programme: 21st Century Programme, Kyushu University
Affiliation as of June 2016: Graduate School of Economics, Kyushu University

I registered for EU-DPs when I was a third year student after I began to consider studying abroad in France. Through the EU-DPs courses, I gained valuable opportunities to learn about Europe. I learned about the basic structure of the EU, which I was not so knowledgeable about, the overall scheme of economic matters in the EU, and about laws in France, which was not related to my major. Fortunately, after I had decided to study in France, I was awarded an "EU scholarship” provided by EUIJ-Kyushu* for students who want to study in Europe. I took advantage of the scholarship as a means to support my life and study in France.

While studying in France, the knowledge about the EU acquired through EU-DPs was really helpful to me, as the contents relating to the structure of the EU were also dealt with in some of my classes in France. Also, though writing a research paper for the completion of the programme was hard work for me, it became a motivation to research deeply about the EU and brought me a further inquiring mind.

During the years of my EU-DPs enrollment, I came to understand much more about Europe and gain a deeper sense of European culture. I would like to continue to research further and expand my connection with Europe from now on by utilizing the completion of my EU-DPs programme.
(currently enrolled in the EU-DPs for graduate students as of June 2016)







(2) Mr Jasur Karshibaev (Completed EU Studies Graduate Diploma Programme 2015 Fall)
Affiliation at the time of completion of the programme: Ph.D. Course, Graduate School of Economics, Kyushu University
Affiliation as of June 2016: Docent of the University of World Economy and Diplomacy, Uzbekistan

The EU Studies Diploma Programmes (EU-DPs) are excellent programs suitable both for students whose research is directly related to EU studies and for those whose focus is on other areas. I joined EUIJ-Kyushu* as a doctoral course student at Kyushu University and enjoyed the EU Studies Graduate Diploma programme during the whole period of my studies. Particularly, the EUIJ-Kyushu library, international and local conferences, lectures, seminars, and other academic events hosted by EUIJ-Kyushu served as a good platform for sharing knowledge and gaining insights on EU-related issues. In view of the fact that most courses and events are also conducted in English, international students can make use of the programme as well.

Furthermore, I enjoyed the well-established research-funding options. Particularly, thanks to a short-visit scholarship from EUIJ-Kyushu, I got an excellent chance to present and discuss the results of my research within an international conference held in London, UK.  Through attending conferences and events held by EUIJ-Kyushu, I became a member of social networks that comprise a variety of people united by their interest in the EU not only from Japan, but also all over the world. Ergo, these interdisciplinary programmes fit best for Japanese and international students who are interested in building up a wide variety of networks both in Kyushu University and at the international level.

Finally, after completion of my studies and returning to my home country Uzbekistan, I got a permanent position at the University of World Economy and Diplomacy under the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Uzbekistan. Owing to the knowledge and experience I got through the EU-DPs, I got involved in teaching and research activities about the EU and Central Asia in other higher education and research institutes. Particularly, I became a part of the research and teaching projects within the ERASMUS+ programme supported by the EU.
Thus, I highly recommend the EU Studies Diploma Programmes to international and Japanese students at Kyushu University, as taking part in the programmes will give you great opportunities for personal development and academic advancement, enhancing your own experience and career prospects.

Yes. Doctoral students can apply for the EU-DP Graduate Diploma Course by submitting a "Letter of Acceptance for the EU Studies Diploma Programmes (EU-DPs) Enrollment" with the signatures of advisors of both your doctoral thesis and your EU-DPs research paper. Doctoral students who fulfill all the requirements can acquire an EU-DP Graduate Diploma.

Do I have to register for the EU-DP courses to my faculty/department if I once register the courses to Kyushu University EU Centre?

Registration to your home faculty/department is necessary. Because the system of registration to Kyushu University EU Centre and registration to your home faculty is different, you need to register the courses separately in order for credit earning. If you fail to register the courses at your home faculty, you may not be able to gain credits. Please be sure to register for the courses at your home faculty/department.

I have some course works which I took and completed in the past. Can I register those courses and use it to complete the EU-DPs?

Courses completed in the past which currently appear on the list of EU-DPs courses may be used toward the EU-DP credits.
Please fill out the entry field in the "Courses and Research Paper Registration Form” and submit it to Kyushu University EU Centre during the registration period. However, the programme requirement cannot be fulfilled only with the previously completed coursework.

Several courses are provided in the same course name with different teachers. Can I register those any courses?

No, you can register only for the course with specified teacher as listed on the EU-DPs Course List.

Do I have to re-enter the name of the courses in the "Course Registration Form (Form 2)" which I once registered for EU-DPs in the past?

No, you do not have to re-register the courses you took before.

Does it cost money to gain the Diploma?

No, EU-DPs is a free programme.

[About the registration period]

I registered and took EU-DPs courses last year, but cannot take any EU-DPs courses this year. In this case, will it be considered that I am not registered in the EU-DPs?

Once you register for EU-DPs, your enrollment in EU-DPs will be regarded as being continued as long as you are enrolled at Kyushu University.

[About credit recognition and final approval]

After I complete EU-DPs courses, do I have to report it or submit a form to Kyushu University EU Centre?

All of your completed EU-DPs courses should be listed on the "EU-DPs Diploma Application", which is to be submitted when you apply for the Diploma. Kyushu University EU Centre will check the credit status of your EU-DPs course work with your academic transcript once we receive the EU-DPs Diploma Application. Kyushu University EU Centre will prepare academic transcripts of EU-DPs students.

When I fulfill the requirement of the EU-DPs, will I be able to receive a diploma automatically?

No. You have to submit the "EU-DPs Diploma Application" during a certain period if you wish to receive a diploma. Kyushu University EU Centre holds an application assessment meeting once in each semester (first/spring and second/fall).
Please refer to "How to Apply for a Diploma” for more details.

[Others]

Is there any penalty for the incompletion of this course? 


No, regardless of your completion requirements, you can register for courses even if it is a subject.

What is the benefit of receiving the diploma?

EU-DPs do not provide you with a certificate which enables you to do something particular immediately. However, it is expected that you will gain fundamental knowledge necessary for you to work actively in an international stage in the future by studying European economics, law and politics, history, culture, society, science technology, environment and public health in an EU research curriculum.
