As an organization equivalent to the faculty, there is a division (corresponding to the Japanese faculty, faculty, and faculty), and among them, department (close to the Japanese department). In some cases, the college may refer to a college in Japanese, but the college system at Oxford and Cambridge is of a different nature, and is sometimes called a dormitory or a college because it is different from the college system in the United States. This is a system in which many students and some faculty members sleep and eat together, and learn together there.
