Randolph’s exchange agreement with Tsuda College in Tokyo offers students the opportunity to study in Japan for a full year or the spring semester. Because the Japanese academic calendar begins in April, Randolph students can elect to spend the first few months of the year living with a host family, studying Japanese, and working on an Randolph independent study project. Tsuda College will annually offer a waiver of tuition and room fees plus a monthly stipend of 40,000 yen for one full-year student or two one-semester students. Students can take courses in Japanese language and Japanese studies. They also have the opportunity to select other courses taught by native speakers of English for Japanese students.
