JLSP photoSix students from across the University have been selected by the International Programmes Department at Pembroke for the Japanese Language and Japan Studies Programme (JLSP) at Nihon University in Tokyo.

Through Pembroke’s close relationship with Nihon University, which includes Pembroke hosting Nihon students during the Easter and summer vacations, graduating undergraduates and graduate students from Cambridge University have this unique opportunity to spend three months immersed in Japanese language and culture. Tuition fees are waived by Nihon University for the three successful applicants for the autumn term (September-December 2016), and the three students for the spring session (January-March 2017). The programme includes intensive Japanese language tuition, as well as courses designed to explore Japanese society and culture taught in English, and also includes social events and field trips to broaden the students’ experience of Japan and its culture.

This programme attracts considerable interest each year, and students attending the JLSP usually have a fantastic time. For many students it is a way to explore future study and career opportunities in Japan. To learn more about the JLSP, visit the Nihon University website. Information on next year’s JLSP application process at Pembroke will appear on the International Programmes Department’s web pages in early 2017.
