Summer Internships in Japan - On Site

Engineering and Computer Science


Participants will live in apartments with other students from UC Davis Summer Internship programs. Each student will share a double room (bedding included) as well a communal bathroom and kitchen. In some cases, a video platform screening may be required with the housing provider.

Participants should be open to all types of accommodations, as housing placements are based on a number of factors such as availability, program length, cost, number of participants and proximity to the internship site. Specific details about accommodations and local transportation to and from internship site will be provided within the month prior to departure.

UC Davis reserves the right to change the accommodation location. Should this be necessary, we will arrange alternative lodging. Please note that elevators, air conditioners and other modern conveniences may not be available in all locations.


A welcome dinner and farewell dinner are included in the program cost. All other meals are not included in the program cost and are the responsibility of the participant.

  • Visit to Kamakura
