Where You Will Study

As one of Japan's top-ranked private universities, Waseda is known for its high academic standards, liberal climate and large international student body. Waseda's main campus is located in the Nishi-Waseda district of Shinjuku and has more than 50,000 students. 

Waseda University's Center for Japanese Language provides Japanese language courses to students at all proficiency levels. The summer program, however, is specifically geared to beginning and intermediate (100-200 level) students of Japanese. 




Academics

UW students must enroll for the six week program in order to receive UW credit. Students who successfully complete the program will receive 15 UW credits through the Department of Asian Literature and Languages.  Students will take comprehensive Japanese classes, as well as have opportunities to participate in extra-curricular engagement activities.



Housing

Students live in local hotels or home stays.  Students will have to find their own accomodations, but they can find assistance through the Waseda Academic Solutions Corporation.
