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 40 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.
Temple University remains committed to providing students with meaningful global learning opportunities amidst the pandemic. Education Abroad and Overseas Campuses is here to support you from your initial interest through preparation. We encourage you to read general information about COVID-19 in Japan and what to expect from studying abroad during COVID-19. As the pandemic continues to impact study abroad opportunities, the Program Status page will be kept up-to-date on which programs are operating, cancelled, or adjusted. Please contact us if you have any questions.
Temple Japan Summer 2022 Study Abroad Cancellation
Unfortunately, the Japanese government’s entry ban impacting non-Japanese residents remains in effect through at least the end of February. As visas will not be issued until entry restrictions are lifted, we are unable to offer the Summer 2022 program.
We plan to run the Fall 2022 study abroad program.
