Exchange Programs

Exchange Programs

Simmons offers two exchange programs. Unlike other study abroad options, you pay Simmons tuition and your financial aid and scholarships are still applicable toward your spring semester or full year in Japan.

1) Ritsumeikan University in Kyoto, Japan offers an exchange program with Simmons students for unique and prestigious programs in Japanese or completely in English! Take a look at their overview brochure here.

There are two different tracks to choose from:

Immerse yourself in Japanese society in the culture-rich city of Kyoto while studying with students from around the world. This program gives you an incredible opportunity to live outside your comfort zone in a historical yet modern city.

2) Students also have the option to attend Hokkaido Universy of Education (HUE) in Sapporo, Japan. In addition to a semester or year exchange program, there is also a summer program.  Perfect your Japanese and experience the culture on Japan's northern island for only 100,000 JPY (approx. $1,000USD)!
