Personal comments
Most of the Japanese do not speak English so all the exchange students are forced to use Japanese, which I consider to be the best method of learning foreign languages. And as my major at university are japanese studies this 1 year in Japan was very useful for me.

Personal recommendation
Tsukuba University is famous for its high level of education (mostly science) and even though the housing environment was really tough it was worth to be there this 1 year. If I had I chance to go there one more time, I wouldn't hesitate.

3.8/5
Housing
Type of housing: On campus
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
Tsukuba is a pretty small town, so most of the apartments are close to the university just like the the dormitories on the campus, but private apartment is much better equipped than what was offered on the campus.
