International Affairs

CUC Summer Program

CUC Summer Program has been organized from 2011. This program invites students from affiliated institutions overseas to learn about Japan, its economy, finance, art and culture at CUC, and to experience Japanese culture. The program is offered in both English and Japanese. CUC students are involved in the management of the program and play an active role in this international exchange experience.

During the program, the participants attend classes in the morning. In the afternoon, they go on excursions visiting JAL Engineering, the Edo-Tokyo Museum, Asakusa, and so on.

CUC is located in Ichikawa city, Chiba prefecture, which is very close to Tokyo. It takes only 30minutes to Tokyo station. As many famous sightseeing spots in Tokyo are within easy access of CUC, the participants will have time to visit these places on weekends.
