The Stanford Program in Kyoto is pleased to announce a special one-off Winter Quarter for the Academic Year 2021-22. For this quarter only, application to the Kyoto Program will not require any prior Japanese language experience. No matter what your level or experience with the Japanese language, ALL students are invited to apply!

In order to ensure student safety during the COVID-19 pandemic, during the AY2021-22, the Kyoto program may operate special housing, academic and cocurricular formats which are different to how the program is normally organised. These arrangements are under constant review and more details will be shared with students closer to the start of the Quarter.
