Spend a semester studying at Lakeland's campus in the heart of Tokyo. Classes are taught in English, and students can earn credits toward their degree and pay Lakeland tuition.
Get an authentic American education in the heart of downtown Tokyo. It’s the best of both worlds—experience life in Japan while receiving top-tier instruction alongside students from all over the world.
Travel to the other side of the world and experience the rich Japanese culture rooted in family and honor. The new campus is on the banks of the Sumida River in Ryogoku. You’ll be just steps away from Sumo Kokugikan, a Japanese traditional wrestling arena, as well as parks, shops, and the Ryogoku train station making travel to student housing and other areas of Tokyo a breeze.
At this American university, all coursework will be provided in English and transferred directly back as LU credit, allowing students to graduate exactly when they planned. Take Japanese culture and language courses while remaining on track with general education and degree-specific coursework. LUJ is on a trimester schedule, meaning classes are in session from January to April, May to August, and August to December.
You will have the opportunity to work or participate in paid internship experiences of up to 28 hours/week while studying in Tokyo! This is a great opportunity for students looking to curb the costs of travel while abroad. If you are interested in taking advantage of this opportunity, contact your Study Abroad Coordinator to receive more information on how to open a Japanese bank account and discuss what kinds of jobs might be available based on your language and professional skills.
Tuition, Fees, and Financial Assistance
Students interested in studying abroad in Japan should meet with the financial aid office to learn more about how their financial aid will apply to their study abroad experience. Students will see their charges for tuition, fees, health insurance, liability insurance, and additional fees on their Lakeland University bill. Transportation, airfare, housing, and meals will not be on the Lakeland University bill and are the responsibility of the student. Students qualify for their Lakeland University, federal, and state financial aid while abroad at LUJ. Any financial aid will get applied to their bill with Lakeland University.
In addition to the Lakeland scholarships noted above, check out the United States-Japan Bridging Foundation funded scholarships.
Never traveled outside the United States? Have no fear. Lakeland provides a customized approach to help students plan for each trip, including developing a checklist for your plans and an orientation for the country you plan to visit.
