Summer School Exchange: Nihon University

As the largest university in Japan, Nihon University offers a broad range of fields of study. This private university has many campuses, spread mostly throughout Tokyo and the Kanto region, and is well known for its notable alumni, including CEOs, artists, and politicians. The Japanese Language and Japan Studies Program (JLSP) offers international students the opportunity to spend almost three months in intensive Japanese language courses, at all levels from beginner to advanced, while simultaneously studying Japanese culture and exploring central Tokyo. Along with intensive Japanese and the mandatory culture course (which includes field trips), students can also choose from optional courses meant to increase their Japanese language skills, allowing them to pursue their interests while working with Japanese volunteers.

JLSP is an intensive Japanese language program, and it is recommended for students who are serious about learning Japanese language.
