This subject allows students to study in Japan at one of the universities with which Monash has formal agreements. Individual study plans based on Japanese proficiency and the host institution's programs are negotiated with the coordinator. Students will normally enrol in a subject or subjects formally offered by the institution concerned, based on the study plan agreed to before departure. The workload for this subject will be not less than that required for an 18-point subject at Monash University and will normally be completed over approximately 9-12 weeks for intensive programs, or over two semesters when combined with other study.


Upon participating in this unit students will improve their proficiency in Japanese through study at a Japanese university.


Students will be required to bring back all written work competed in Japan for assessment and/or to sit for a competency test. Assessment will be conducted by Monash staff, drawing on assessments provided by the host institution and direct assessment of work completed and competence achieved.
