From Waseda

Partner Universities' Programs

Utilize your time effectively after coming back from a long-term study abroad! Retain your English ability by “Theme Studying!”

These are short-term programs hosted by partner universities that are held for 2-4 weeks mainly around June to August (some from December to January). They are not language programs, but rather studies based on themes. They are held when classes are in session at Waseda University, so these theme studies are recommended for students who have just come back to Japan from a long-term study abroad. Take note that there are two types of these short-term study programs hosted by partner universities—“Programs that require nomination by Waseda University” which need the nomination by the Center for International Education, and “Programs applied on an individual basis” which require you to apply directly to partner universities on your own.

Note

  • Many of the programs are held when classes are still in session at Waseda University, so please be careful how your participation will effect courses you take at Waseda University. If you are currently studying abroad, be sure to check on your own if participating in theme study programs will affect your classes.
  • Only full-time regular students may apply.
  • Questions about programs should be asked directly to the host universities.
  • We currently post programs which will be held only on online.

Programs requiring nomination by Waseda University

For the following programs, you are required to be nominated by Waseda University before you apply to the partner universities. First, submit designated documents (specified Waseda University application form, written oath, etc.) to the Center for International Education of Waseda University by the internal deadline. You cannot apply past the deadline, or apply directly to the partner universities.

After you are chosen to participate in a program, apply for the designated international mobile phone and travel insurance by following guidance from the Center for International Education (mandatory).

You cannot cancel your participation once you are nominated. If there is an unavoidable circumstance that will not allow your participation, consult with Center for International Education and the university hosting the theme study program. Please take note that you may be required to pay a cancellation fee even if you are allowed to cancel.

※If you are expected to graduate from Waseda within a year and your planned program at a partner university continues over 15 March or 15 September onwards, you cannnot apply for the program because you will not be a Waseda student after your graduation from Waseda.
