The Exchange & Study Abroad Program is an academic program for exchange students from overseas partner institutions, as well as selected individual applicants, who wish to learn about Japan and experience it in person. Students may participate in Exchange & Study Abroad for either a single semester or an academic year. The program offers Japanese language skills and training courses from the introductory to advanced levels. A wide variety of culture and civilization courses on Japan taught in English are also offered each semester. Exchange & Study Abroad allows students from other countries to learn about and experience Japan within the supportive environment of J. F. Oberlin University's Center for International Studies.
