About ISAKx Short Courses

After launching our core ISAKx program in 2020, we knew we found something special and our unique approach to education was reaching new audiences.

In Spring 2021, we launched a new short course program and are thrilled to take that program one step further by introducing the 2021 ISAKx Summer Online Course. As with everything ISAKx, this program will be entirely online, but the focus will be on acquiring English language skills, while learning about leadership and design thinking!

Our short program will be run by faculty from UWC ISAK Japan and will feature activities and discussions designed to stretch and challenge participants studying English.

The expected minimum English level is EIKEN Pre-2 equivalent. Participants will receive support and guidance in using English so they can get the most out of each workshop.
