TKU Summer Program

The TKU Summer Program is designed for students from TKU’s partner universities who have a strong interest in Japan and want to deepen their understanding of Japanese culture. It is offered to promote an exchange between students from TKU and its partner universities. All lectures, except Japanese language lessons, are conducted in English. The program consists of not only unique lectures about Japanese culture and a homestay but also many activities and exchange sessions, so participants can gain an appreciation of the lifestyles, customs, and personalities of the people of Japan. Individuals must participate in the whole program with a positive attitude and should want to study more about Japan after the program ends.
Japanese ability is not required, but interest in the Japanese language is essential. This program is conducted mainly in English.
