The Japan Exchange and Teaching Programme (JET Programe)

JET (Japan Exchange and Teaching), a program sponsored by the Japanese government provides graduating students with the opportunity to live and work in Japan assisting English teachers in Japanese public elementary schools, middle schools, and high schools. You must be a senior with a June graduation expectation to apply. Japanese language background is not required. If you need a letter of recommendation from your Japanese language instructor, please be sure to ask at least three weeks in advance. Usually the application deadline is in the late November but you must refer to their website and check the most updated information carefully so you can make it to the deadline without any problems.
