Application for 2021

Thank you for your interest in the 2021 Summer Courses in Japanese (SCJ)

This past summer, due to the corona virus, we were unable to proceed with the program for the first time; but that has made us all the more determined to go ahead with SCJ in the summer of 2021. And so, although at this stage we are unable to plan for a full scale residential program, we are keen to provide students with the opportunity to take part in SCJ on an online basis. Although we will not be able to operate entirely as normal, we look forward to welcoming you to our program and will do our utmost to ensure that you receive a positive and rewarding educational experience.
