International Education Program (Outbound)

Study Abroad Experience (SAE)

Since the founding of Tamagawa Academy in 1929, and the subsequent establishing of Tamagawa University in 1947, Tamagawa has actively provided international education based on the premise "The Earth is our home." One of the University's initiatives is the Study Abroad Experience (SAE program), consisting of foreign language training and studying abroad.

Most programs are specially planned courses offered based on the agreement between Tamagawa University and the institutions abroad. Consideration is given so that students not only learn the language and culture of the country, but also directly experience the people's lives through homestay and other means.

Long term programs

Students stay in a country for four months to one year. There are three types of programs that students can choose from:
・Academic Subjects( + English Language Program)
・Volunteer Experience + English Language Program
・English Language Program
Credits are given to the students, commensurate with the courses they complete overseas.

Short term programs

Training sessions usually last for approximately two to five weeks, and are offered mainly during summer and spring recesses. The training gives an opportunity for students to broaden their knowledge and views through exchanges with the local people, while they learn the language and culture at universities. Credits are given to students, commensurate with the courses they have completed.
