Diese Programme sind nicht Teil der regulären Austauschabkommen und können in einigen Fällen Studiengebühren beinhalten. Es ist wichtig zu wissen, dass diese Kurzzeitaufenthalte nicht immer in Form von ECTS-Punkten anerkannt werden. Je nach Universität konzentrieren sich die Programme auf den interkulturellen Austausch, die japanische Sprachausbildung, Ingenieurkurse oder individuelle Forschung. 

Bevor Sie sich für eine der Sommer- oder Winterschulen bewerben, wenden Sie sich bitte an die JASEC-Mitarbeiter und informieren Sie sich über die spezifischen Anforderungen.
