Program Description

Best of Both Worlds

Pittsburgh – a big city with small-town safety, charm, and hospitality – is frequently voted one of the most livable cities in the United States. Diverse and cosmopolitan, Pittsburgh has about 2.5 million residents in the surrounding area, including over 7,000 international students studying at its universities.

Like to attend major sporting events?
Visit a world-class zoo or amusement park? Chatham University is in a great location, offering students the comforts of a peaceful campus with access to a vibrant city and activities within minutes.

In Pittsburgh, you’ll find a wide range of cultural offerings, such as the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, art museums (including the Carnegie Museum of Art and the Andy Warhol Museum), and many shopping opportunities. The beautiful 640-acre Frick Park is a 15-minute walk from campus and has many trails for hiking and mountain biking. You can explore exciting caves, take hikes in pristine landscapes, and go camping and white water rafting in one of the many nearby state parks. Chatham is a short ride from the Pittsburgh International Airport, which has easy connections to other major U.S. cities and international destinations. All Chatham students receive bus passes that permit easy access to the amenities of the city. You can also rent a bicycle from Chatham’s bike shop.

Many of Chatham’s campus buildings (including residence halls) are historic mansions in the upscale Pittsburgh neighborhoods of Shadyside and Squirrel Hill. These small, friendly neighborhoods are located just minutes from the arts and commerce of Pittsburgh.

How to Apply

You must be a current Kyoto Women's University student. To apply, you must meet the academic requirements of Kyoto University and be nominated. Applicants must submit a TOEFL/IELTS examination. Students are expected to take High-Intermediate or Advanced level ELP courses in the Summer session. Students with a TOEFL score of 525/71 or 6.0 on IELTS will be eligible to take academic courses right away in the Fall semester and continue in the Spring term. If scores fall under those limits, the student will be required to take both academic courses and English language courses in the Fall term. If you have a test other than TOEFL/IELTS, please contact us- we accept several other proficiency exams for application.

Interested students should submit the following:

• Completed Application
• Official transcripts from all universities attended
• Submit a copy of your passport
• Bank verification letter showing sufficient funds for the semester or year.
• Standardized language exam results

Classes are expected to be in-person or a mix of in-person with virtual components, for Summer 2021. Decisions on operations will be made in early 2021.

Semester Application Deadline

April 1st

Interested students should apply as early as possible to have enough time to get a student visa.


Students are required to live on-campus. Students might live in one of our renovated historical mansions, or in residence halls that look like apartments.
