Due to increased uncertainty regarding the ability of students to be granted the necessary visas and entry permission by the Government of Japan in time for the fall semester, on July 1 the AKP Board of Directors made the decision to cancel the Fall 2020 program.

We are still planning to hold the Spring 2021 program as originally scheduled. All accepted students for Fall 2020 have been given the option of deferring to Spring 2021 or reapplying for Fall 2021. Any questions about the fall semester cancellation or planning for future semesters should be directed to the US Office of AKP at [email protected]
