The program is designed so that interpersonal connections between Japanese and CISaustralia students can easily be made. CIS students have the opportunity to learn the language, history and culture first-hand in an incredible setting. Seisen is an all female university; however, both males and females will be accepted on this program.

 Location overview Though set in the middle of bustling Tokyo, Seisen University's private hilltop campus feels like a sanctuary. The university is in the heart of it all, yet it offers a peaceful escape from the city’s hustle and bustle. Seisen sits on the grounds of a former Samurai Mansion, in a park-like setting, just a short distance from the world-famous central Tokyo neighbourhoods of Harajuku and Shibuya.
