Chaucer College, Canterbury

Chaucer College was established in 1992 by Mr Hiroshi Kawashima, the Founder of the Shumei Group in Japan. Together with its sister college, Kingsgate (Broadstairs), it welcomes Japanese high school and university students. The majority of Chaucer students spend the first year of their four-year Japanese university programmes in the UK.

Typically, they study Business Administration, Tourism Management, Teacher Education or English & Information Technology.The Shumei ethos stresses the importance of international co-operation, and Chaucer College, an educational charity, aims to fulfil this in part by encouraging the students to become involved in community outreach (school visits, participation in local festivals, college events for the general public) and volunteering.

The college has supported the Festival every year since it was launched in 2006, and we very much hope that you will enjoy the taste of Japanese culture that they offer you.
