  • Preparing for a year in Japan

    Wednesday, 14 August 2013

    Lizzie Lawrence is studying Asia Pacific Studies with Japanese at the University of Central Lancashire, and she's about a week away from going to do her year abroad at Akita International University in Japan (in the 'Scotland of Japan' to be precise).

  • I’ve spent the past eight months in Japan studying Japanese on a scholarship from Nihon Keizai Daigaku, organised through links with my college at Oxford University. I live in Fukuoka, on the southern island of Kyushu in a dormitory provided by the university with some other people on the same scholarship.

The programme was established in 1987, with 848 participants from four countries.

  • Trendy Tokyo

    Tokyo, Japan - beautiful, peaceful, collegiate, metropolitan, suburb

    Living in a homestay with an elderly, conservatively-minded couple for 10 months was a trial at times, but ultimately a good experience as my language and cultural experience improved immensely. I really enjoyed my stay there, although I did face a bit of a problem when a change in teaching took place half-way through the course, which badly affected my study at the International Christian University. There's loads to do and see in Tokyo, so you'll never be bored and with the great transport system, you can get around easily and efficiently, even if you want to go further afield from the town centre.
