Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
Ever wanted to learn more about Japan but didn't have the time? Now that the Covid-19 coronavirus is keeping us all in isolation, this might be a good opportunity to go back to uni – without the caffeine-fueled all-nighters and exorbitant school fees, of course.
Through online platforms like edX, you can take courses on Japan from the world’s top universities for free. These courses are self-paced, so you can watch the lectures and complete the exercises in your own time.
These English-language courses range from Japanese architecture to Japanese literature and are offered by prestigious Japanese universities like the University of Tokyo or even a few US Ivy League schools. So get your notebooks ready and start studying.
