Study Japanese Abroad

There are three possibilities for study in Japan offered for both Japanese language students and for others:

  1. “Japanese Language and Culture in an Immersion Setting” (4-week Group Study)

    In addition to learning the language, students who take Japanese courses at the University of Calgary also learn about the culture and way of life in Japan. This is particularly true for those who partake in the Japanese Group Study Program, which is offered annually and gives students the chance to further their study of Japanese language and culture in an immersion setting. This 4-week study abroad program typically takes place in Tokyo in May - June, with courses of language instruction offered through Senshu University. Past program participants have indicated that they gained valuable international experiences through the program and many have even returned to Japan to study or work for longer periods of time.

  2. “Japan: Its Culture and Life” (2-week Group Study)

    This is a brand new program starting in May 2017 and is suitable for any student (no Japanese Language requirement), based in and around Tokyo. For further information, please contact us.
