The purpose of the study is to investigate the change of awareness of student during the "KIKAN Education Seminar" for first year students in Kyushu University. The "KIKAN Education Seminar" first started under the semester system in April 2014 and had been reconstructed in response to the shift to the quarter system in April 2017. We developed new units and combined several units, while maintaining the educational purpose of the seminar. In order to evaluate the educational effects (including the change of student's awareness), we surveyed the change of student's attitudes from 2016 to 2017 using a questionnaire. This questionnaire focused on their learning motivation, communication skills, perspective on the future, and view of the significance of university learning. Typical results of the questionnaire and text-mining analysis concerning learning beliefs clarified that the score in 2017 about the significance of learning in university improved over 2016. The acquirement of new learning beliefs may be related to newly introduced contents. These results show the value of this seminar in the first year experience and the improvement of the quality of education due to the shift to the quarter system. We re-found the significance of this seminar via this research.
