Study in Japan

Study in Japan

While enrolled at the UW you can study in Japan. The UW has:

  • Relationships with about 20 institutions of higher learning in Japan
  • 30 separate programs ranging from a few weeks during summer, to full academic year.
  • Some programs are through specific UW departments, but open to all UW students.

Two of the key relationships which students take advantage of regularly for both summer and year-long programs are with Waseda University (for language and general studies) and the Inter-University Center for Japanese Language Studies in Yokohama ( for intensive language study). 

Visit the UW Study Abroad’s “Getting Started” page.
