This paper is a report on a week-long international student program for UEC’s partner university, Harbin Engineering University (China), carried out by Center for International Programs and Exchange (CIPE), UEC, in August 2014. Financially supported by Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) under SAKURA Exchange Program in Science, CIPE successfully implemented this short-term program. In an increasingly globalized world, international student mobility is an essential topic in the world’s higher education. Under the trend, “The 300,000 International Students Plan” was proposed by the Prime Minister in 2008 in Japan. In order to foster global student mobility, short-term exchange programs will further play an important role since they can provide opportunities for more students compared to traditional longer programs (semester or year-long), with the relatively lower cost, less influence of the academic calendar of the home institution, and so on. However, we face some issues to overcome to continue and develop short-term programs.
