Where is the T-ACT Forum?

The T-ACT Forum office is located on the 3rd floor of Building 1D. The T-ACT Forum is at the back of the General Consultation Services office opposite the satellite office. It is in the building next to the Student Plaza (pink building).

Can we use the T-ACT Forum for meetings?

Yes. You can use the T-ACT Forum office to hold a meeting at any time as long as it is within the opening hours of the office. You can do it even if your plan has not been approved. However, we recommend making a reservation because sometimes the office is in use.

Do we have to implement a plan once we propose it?

No. Even if you propose a plan, you may encounter some practical problems and difficulties, such as lack of progress, not being able to gather enough like-minded students, difficulty getting everyone together, and having your hands full with your own job-hunting and research activities.

That in itself is an experience, and it is all right if you cannot do the activity. It is okay just to throw an idea into the ring, without knowing if it will actually go ahead. It is no problem to fail or to stop in the middle. We believe that simply having an interest in T-ACT, and thinking about trying to make a proposal or trying to gather like-minded students is a significant experience in the life of a student.

Challenge yourself without worrying about it!

I don’t know how to do T-ACT activities…

The T-ACT Consultant can advise you from scratch. Come in and see us because we can help you in all stages, from when you only have a vague idea to when you are doing the activity.

How do I find the faculty and staff member who can take on the role of T-CAT Partner? What do I do if they refuse?

First of all, try asking a faculty or staff member you are familiar with and can chat with. In addition to the faculty and staff members around you, everyone involved in the plan should try asking an academic advisor or faculty member in an Academic Service Office whom they feel comfortable asking. If you still cannot find someone, consult with the T-ACT Forum.

I looked at the website and leaflets, but I still don’t know how to make an Action or Plan.

The explanations in the website and leaflets are only an outline. Feel free to visit the T-ACT Forum if you would like to know more details or talk to us directly. The T-ACT Forum staff members are waiting to hear from you.

Are there prohibitions? How much freedom do students have in conducting the activities?

Yes. There are prohibitions. Please ask a consultant directly for specific information on prohibitions.

There are many things you can do with a bit of ingenuity!

What are the merits of T-ACT?

Put simply, the merits are as follows:

1. You can easily complete the procedures for putting up posters on campus and distributing leaflets.

2. You can print leaflets and posters at the T-ACT Forum. (There are some limits.)

3. You can borrow equipment (computers, cameras, video equipment, microphones, projectors, and more).

4. You can interact with various people on campus and with local residents.

5. You will be eligible for Personal Accident Insurance for Students Pursuing Education and Research in your activities (in case of injury).

6. You can receive a T-ACT Completion Certificate for experiences you have participated in, and use this for your career portfolio.

Is financial support available for activities from T-ACT?

No. Unfortunately there are no funds for activities under T-ACT.

Consult with the T-ACT Forum about how you can obtain funding. Please consult with us about the different ways to get funding, such as gaining financial assistance or support, or crowdfunding. We will try and find solutions together.

Are activities covered by insurance?

Insurance is available in the form of Personal Accident Insurance for Students Pursuing Education and Research. All students who entered the university in the 2016 academic year have this insurance, as well as students who entered the university in the 2017 academic year and purchased the insurance voluntarily. If you have the Personal Accident Insurance for Students Pursuing Education and Research, you are covered by the insurance according to its terms when engaging in activities on and off campus.(For details, see Personal Accident Insurance for Students Pursuing Education and Research).

In principle, people who participate in volunteer activities must have a Volunteer Activity Insurance. You can enjoy activities with peace-of-mind because you will be covered not only while conducting an activity, but also on the way to and from the location of the activity. The method of getting the insurance varies according to the activity that you will participate in, so consult with the T-ACT Forum for details.

How are these activities different from extracurricular activities?

Extracurricular activities tend to be constant and it is assumed that the members are relatively fixed.
The biggest difference is that activities under T-ACT are short-term, one-off activities. By engaging in short-term or one-off activities, like-minded students who have a specific goal or purpose can get together when it suits them and meet each other only at that time, allowing them to forge a new and different kind of relationship.
In addition, your own role within the organization will be fluid, and you can get away from fixed roles. Furthermore, it is possible to get insurance when conducing T-ACT activities.(For details, see Personal Accident Insurance for Students Pursuing Education and Research).

Why does the University of Tsukuba need T-ACT?


Proactive students who are always on the lookout for information from the university, and who are willing to do their own legwork to obtain information will be able to get sufficient support from the university.
However, we have noticed that students who are not that proactive often do not receive enough support from the university, no matter what information is communicated by the university, so our student support system is only useful for a few students.
Therefore, T-ACT was established so that the university can actively communicate information to students and provide a new support system to encourage more students to engage in activities.
