Our Keio exchange starts with several months of intensive Japanese language training. Then come the highlights of our scholarship exchange programme with Keio Shonan Fujisawa Senior High School in Yokohama.
The exchange programme has been running for a number of years and we expect it to continue for many years to come. A scholarship scheme set up by the founder of Keio School has enabled a small number of our students to welcome a group of Japanese students into their homes.
The Japanese students attend lessons in our Foundation and visit places of interest in and around Cambridge and London. This hospitality is reciprocated when our students visit Japan for an expenses paid trip to the Keio campus which also includes visits to cultural sites and famous landmarks.
This is a scholarship awarded to students demonstrating an interest in Japanese language and culture, who are willing to commit to weekly twilight Japanese lessons, leading to a one year GCSE.
It is a highly successful exchange, with students and exchange partners often developing lasting friendships.
It all adds up to a remarkable cultural experience that has a lasting impact on everyone involved, whatever their nationality.
