The Center for Global Education Short-Term Winter Study Abroad Programs


These short-term winter study abroad programs are organized by the partner universities and the University of Tokyo for UTokyo students. We recruit participants for 5 programs. Some programs are customized for UTokyo based on programs originally offered at the partner universities. Contents of the programs are lectures, fieldworks, collaboration and interaction with students from the host universities, language classes, cultural experience, and so on. This is the programs that UTokyo students participate in as a group. There will be mainly only UTokyo students/Japanese students in class rooms. The short-term winter study abroad programs are similar to the short-term summer study abroad programs, but the schedule and the host universities are different. (There may be programs which are offered in both the summer study abroad programs and the winter study abroad program.)
To see programs for which students can directly apply to a host institution, please refer to the “Direct Application Programs” page.
