Students from a total of 66 universities in and outside Japan including Harvard have organized the summer schools in which Japanese high school students divided into small groups can participate in English lectures and workshops to broaden their views for their future career planning. The schools will run in August.


The summer schools will be held in Tokyo, Nagano, Tokushima and Miyagi prefectures. The summer school in Tokyo will be held from August 14 to 22 (up to 80 high school students), from August 14 to 20 in Nagano Prefecture (up to 50), from August 16 to 22 for Tokushima Prefecture (up to 50), and from August 14 to 20 in Miyagi Prefecture (up to 60). Each summer school will be conducted in the form of a training camp with the tuition ranging from 60,000 yen to 80,000 yen. About 10 to 20 university students from overseas and 20 to 30 university students in Japan will participate in each summer school for exchange with Japanese high school students. “We want as many high students as possible to participate in the summer schools because the opportunity will offer opportunities for frank exchanges with university students of various nationalities – something Japanese high school students cannot experience in Japan,” said Naoki Kobayashi (21), a junior at the University of Tokyo and the representative of the organizing committee of the event. Applicants will be selected based on their essays.
