PROGRAM OVERVIEW

This program is a unique opportunity to become completely immersed in Japanese culture and to take your Japanese studies to the next level! In this exchange program, students enroll at the University of Nagasaki and take a semester of tuition-free, transferable Edmonds CC credits during Fall and Winter quarters. As a representative of Edmonds CC, students qualify for university subsidized housing, as well as gain the opportunity to attend special events for international students.

This program is treated and run as an exchange with only a few students for a longer time than a traditional study abroad program. The purpose is to internationalize both participating campuses, and we design specific pre-departure meetings for Edmonds CC students who are accepted. The greatest advantage to this program is the true immersion you will experience. You will be fully surrounded by Japanese culture and language and university life, much more so compared to a traditional study abroad program.

Please print, fill out, sign, and submit completed documents to the Study Abroad office (Snohomish Hall 301)
