Transit - International Exchange
Artworks created by developing our international exchange and exhibitions in overseas
Our school makes the international exchange agreements with universities around the world. We accept the foreign students from the partner schools as well as sending our students to overseas schools. We also hold the international exhibition called “Transit”. Meeting, talking and creating with the foreign students who have the same interests and aspirations provide a great opportunity for students to exhibit their artworks both in Japan and overseas. Transit has lasted for more than 10 years since 2001. Tokyo Zokei University and Kyoto University of Art & Design participated in Transit in 2006-2008 that deepens our bonds among the three Zokei universities in Japan.
