Extended Leave from APU (Field Research, etc.)

Those planning to leave the University for field research for an extended period (1 month or more) without taking a Leave of Absence, must inform the Academic Office of your Report on Activities Outside APU after receiving approval from your supervisor.

The reasons for this requirement are as follows:
1. For the management of your student visa, the Japan Immigration Bureau, Student Office and Academic Office must be informed of your academic progress each semester. However, if a student is not attending classes and/or is away from the university for an extended period, the university has no confirmation or proof of status as a student. The Report on Activities Outside APU may be used in this case to prove your status as a student.
2. In case of emergency or natural disaster abroad, the university will be able to quickly confirm the safety of its students.
Note: In case of Leave of Absence, procedures must be conducted in advance at the Student Support Center.

Those who plan to leave the university for an extended period (for field research, etc.) should complete the Report on Activities Outside APU for submission to the Academic Office prior to departure*.

*Activities must be approved by the supervisor before reporting to the Academic Office.
*GSM students who do not have a supervisor (1st semester students) should receive approval from the Dean. In other cases where the supervisor is undecided, please consult with the Academic Office.
