July 2020 UK JET Programme Update

Updates for the current 2020 UK JET candidates

Current 2020 shortlist candidates will be able to choose to depart with the 2020 cohort or to defer to the 2021 intake. Details of this will be sent to candidates in due course via a follow-up email.

If travel restrictions have not eased by the end of September, shortlist candidates will depart with the 2021 intake. Please check the most recent update email for further information regarding Tokyo’s announcement.

Updates for the 2021 Intake

The 2021 JET Programme application timeline may be subject to certain changes as the COVID-19 pandemic has greatly affected the JET process for the current 2020 intake. More details about next year’s application process will be given in the autumn through the UK JET website.

We would advise checking our website for updates closer to the application period. Applications are usually open from October to November (date to be announced some time in autumn). The closing date for applications will be confirmed once applications have opened officially for 2021.
