(1) Actual costs for practicums
Costs must be paid for white coats/shoes used for practicums, as well as costs for tests taken prior to practicums, and the actual cost of transport and accommodation necessary for participating in practicums on each occasion.
However, since there may be a cost disparity between practicum locations in terms of transport and accommodation choices, the Support Group fees help to correct these disparities to a degree (as explained in (3)).
(2) Purchase of teaching materials
Textbook fees are to be borne by the individual.
(3) Support Group fees (excludes Graduate School students)
At IPNU there is a Support Group organization set up for the purpose of better student welfare (members are guardians or guarantors of IPNU students).
The Support Group supports the Student’s Association/University festival/club activities and provides assistance for transport costs necessary for practicums outside of the university.
