University of East Anglia（UEA）, U.K.
‘Japan Orientation’ summer school for students from Central and Eastern Europe.
The planning and operation of the summer school at the University of East Anglia (UEA), UK is another programme initiated by TIFO. Since 2014, the university has hosted an annual three-week summer school, with a UEA-developed lecture programme that promotes better understanding of the Japanese language and traditions and current diplomacy. Appreciation of fine arts was encouraged through museum visits. The courses are offered in English, towards achieving easier and quicker understanding and knowledge development.
TIFO aims to stimulate the students to be open to studying Japan further.
