In Summer 2017, the vision to launch an IUHPFL program in Japan finally became a reality in the city of Osaka, which is located in Osaka Province along Osaka Bay. This program is open to students who are Indiana high school juniors, seniors, and sophomores at the time of application and who will have completed Japanese Level II or higher before departure. Speaking only Japanese for the entire 5-week experience is a requirement.
See our Instructor Blogs to learn more about what happens during programs.
The Osaka program is offered every other year (in odd numbered years*).
*Due to Covid-19, the years this program may be offered have changed. Please, check the program dates below, to see when the Osaka, Japan program will be offered next.
