A Message from the TSC Office

Dear prospective Education Abroad Program students,

We are writing to you from the UC Tokyo Study Center, which oversees all the UCEAP programs in Japan. Are you looking for a program with the excitement of living in Tokyo, or the more leisurely pace of tradition-bound Kyoto? If you are a science major, you might be thinking about studying at a research lab under a professor doing cutting edge work at the prestigious national universities in Osaka or Sendai. Or are you considering studying on a lovely campus in suburban Tokyo or Yokohama?

For all of these programs, the Tokyo Study Center is here to support you. We are dedicated to making sure that all goes well for you, academically and personally, during your stay in Japan. As you know, Japan has an extraordinary culture; 2000 years old and yet up-to-the-minute contemporary. Kabuki, bunraku, manga, fashion, noise music, tea ceremony; you can take your pick of traditional, popular, or avant-garde. And given rapidly evolving global markets and international collaborative research, having experienced life in a foreign country should be a major plus when you graduate and start looking for a job. Japan; a major financial, scientific, and cultural hub in Asia; will help broaden your horizons immeasurably. And Japan has the added bonus of an excellent National Health system, which you will be covered by during your stay here. All this, for not much more (and sometimes less) than the cost of studying at your home campus! We realize that the decision to study abroad, be it for a semester or a year, is not an easy one, and you may have questions that you would like answered. Check us out at our website for the UC Tokyo Study Center ( for photos and information about the campuses that you are considering, and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact our office.

We are looking forward to hearing from you and hopefully meeting you here in Japan!

All the best,
Kayo, Kazumi, Kosuke and Teneal
