Temple University, Japan Campus, also known as TUJ, offers you the opportunity to study abroad in Tokyo during the summer, or for a semester or the full academic year. As a participant in the fall, spring or 10-week summer semester, you will study alongside degree-seeking Japanese students, who comprise 37 percent of undergraduates, as well as international students from about 60 countries all around the world. With such a diverse student body, you can expect a dynamic exchange of ideas and perspectives on current global issues, international relations, and aspects of traditional and popular culture. Outside of the classroom, we hope that you will continue this exchange by participating in the many social activities organized each semester. We also hope that you will take advantage of the full schedule of outings, events and workshops that expose you to new locations and various aspects of life in Tokyo and throughout Japan.
IMPORTANT PROGRAM UPDATES
Fall 2021-Spring 2022
Applications are open for spring programs (fall/academic year deadlines have passed). Education Abroad and Temple Japan are working to ensure a positive and enriching time abroad. Given the global changes amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, your study abroad experience may differ from how you imagined it. Take a look at communications for previous terms to get a sense for the type of updates you might receive to prepare for your time abroad. As we move forward, we will continue to monitor developments related to COVID-19 and will provide you with updates specific to your program. In the meantime, we encourage you to reference Education Abroad’s COVID-19 Acknowledgement of Risks.
After a thorough review of current circumstances and much discussion with our colleagues in Japan and on Main Campus, Temple University will not be able to offer the summer study abroad program at Temple Japan. View Temple Japan Summer 2021 Program Updates.
