Every year, YUMT selects outstanding students to actively apply for 6-month or 1-year student exchange programs at our sister schools. The student exchange programs in Germany, England, Japan, and New Zealand are the most popular among students, and they help cultivate students’ international perspective and enhance their future employment competitiveness. Meanwhile, YUMT provides dual degree programs through our sister schools in Japan, England, and the United States. After students acquire basic knowledge and skills at YUMT, they can continue to pursue professional studies and experience different cultures abroad.
