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. 


Students who successfully complete the program will receive 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.


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.


Program Expenses, Financial Aid & Scholarships

For this program you will pay all program fees directly to the program provider. The UW Study Abroad Administrative Fee, however, will be charged to your UW student account and payment will be due by the UW tuition deadline for your first quarter of enrollment.
