A KO For KU

University of California students taking part in an annual exchange program at Kyoto University were so angry at the English-language program that they quit half way through the year. Each year, the prestigious "Kyodai" accepts six students, who can choose to study subjects taught in Japanese or a special program in English. The students in the latter program were unhappy about teaching methods and the fact that they had a different professor for each lecture. One student was quoted as saying the courses had "no substance to them".
