Network with Parents and Guarantors

Regional Parent Meeting

Sophia University holds Regional Parent Meetings in various locations throughout Japan each year. We provide parents and guarantors with the latest information about the University, and explain the status of studies and employment of students.

*In view of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been holding the sessions in a combined face-to-face and online format for the last few years.
