1998 - still on going
Every year since 1998, The Sheffield College has welcomed around 15 to 20 Japanese students from Keiai Gakuen High School in Chiba, Japan, to study a one year course.
Students live with an English host family for 9 months and learn a wide range of subjects including Maths, English, European Cuisine and Sport. Students develop their Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing skills throughout the year, as well as gaining confidence in speaking English, being independent and socialising with people from different cultures and nationalities.
2002 - still on going
Every year our summer school welcomes more than 40 Japanese students for a three week intensive English Language and Activities course, from Nihon University Narashino Senior High School. Students have a wonderful experience living with their homestay in Sheffield and studying at The Sheffield College. They discover the English culture and heritage by visiting Chatsworth, York and Manchester as well as the Sheffield area.

We strongly believe that these programmes strengthen the relationship between the United Kingdom and Japan, and help to promote Sheffield as an attractive touristic city. Many students come back to Sheffield to study longer courses, or apply to enter Sheffield Universities.
