The University of Lethbridge and it’s oldest international partner have signed a new “double-degree agreement.”
It means students at Hokkai-Gakuen University can complete their first two years in Japan, followed by two years in Lethbridge, to earn degrees from both institutions.
The U of L and Hokkai-Gakuen, which is located in Sapporo, have a 38 year partnership of faculty and student exchanges with dozens of faculty and hundreds of students visiting each institution.
