CWAJ College Women's Association of Japan


Foreign Students' Circle (FSC)

Foreign Students’ Circle (FSC) holds cultural and educational events for foreign students to help them gain a deeper understanding of Japanese culture and customs. We try to develop close contact with students and help them adapt to life in Japan. FSC is a wonderful opportunity for CWAJ members as well as foreign students to learn about Japanese culture while making friends with CWAJ members and students from around the world.

A FSC General Meeting will be held in September (maybe September 13 or 14).
