Tsuda College is located in the western Tokyo suburb of Kodaira-shi (population 185,000) which is 13 miles west of the Shinjuku ward of Tokyo. Tsuda students provide support to exchange students through a "big sisters" program. Exchange students can take part in variety of extra-curricular clubs such as culture, music and athletic clubs.
Students take intensive Japanese language courses and Japanese studies courses. A few courses in communication and English literature are offered in English.
Program dates for the Academic Year are mid-September to early August and early April to early August for the Spring Semester. It is not possible to study at Tsuda College during the Fall semester since Tsuda's Fall semester finishes after KU's Spring semester begins. See above for specific dates for each academic term.
