The International Student Help Desk was first set up in April 2019 to help international students adjust to being in Japan by providing assistance, such as navigating student life on campus, explaining procedures at government offices and hospitals, translating notices and giving directions to places around Sendai.
Staff at the Help Desk are Tohoku University students, most of whom have experience studying abroad and can relate to the challenges of being a foreigner trying to fit in a new environment. Anyone needing a bit of extra support is encouraged to stop by or make contact online.
