Benefits of studying in JUE

Research of Original Schools of English Program (ROSE Program)

JUE believes that in the world today, one must not only learn in the classroom but outside the classroom as well. The ROSE Program allows students of JUE to study abroad specifically, in the United Kingdom (UK) for the UK has been an international partner of JUE for over 20 years since 1996. Students may conduct advanced research on the UK's economic status and culture for them not experience as much culture shock. The UK is an English speaking country; thus, students must at least have basic English knowledge or can speak English. This is because the activities involved in the program, like classes and visitation of historical and educational sites, as well as all interactions with local people are done in English. JUE hopes that participants of the program will learn how to contend and act on the global stage with language and other skills.
