Founded by the Jesuits in 1913 and placed in the heart of Tokyo, Sophia University has been a pioneer in global education in Japan.

All of our faculties and graduate schools welcome international students. 1,760 international students come from more than 81 countries and from all parts of the world.

Chuo University was first established in 1885 as the English Law School. Today it is one of the largest and most prestigious private universities in Japan and is particularly renowned for accomplishments in law, policy studies, and science and engineering. In addition, many of Chuo's Business and Economics graduates have gone on to become top-level executives at major corporations in Japan and abroad. During our 134-year history, Chuo has seen steady growth from a specialized School of Law, which continues to produce many of Japan’s judges, prosecutors, and lawyers, to a comprehensive university with eight faculties, seven graduate schools, and two professional graduate schools, in addition to nine research institutes, four affiliated high schools, and two affiliated junior high schools. Chuo was founded on the spirit of “Fostering the Ability to Apply Knowledge to Practice”, and we aspire to provide practical education that helps young people meet the demands of today’s global society.
Rikkyo University started its history in 1874 as a small boarding school teaching English language and Bible studies. 140 years later, Rikkyo University has retained its tradition of education based upon humanistic values and Christian concern for others.

Global society is constantly in motion, driven by the various people of the world, who all hold their own cultures and ideas. In order to take one's place in this evolving global society, it is essential to develop new modes of free thinking. Since its founding in 1880 under the principles of "Freedom and Progress", Hosei University has graduated talented individuals who have gone on to promote societal reform in a wide range of fields, as well as contribute achievements in culture and sports. We nurture the talents and skills of our students so that they can excel on the global stage with our numerous fields of study in 15 faculties and over 200 clubs and unique extracurricular activities, all in 3 distinctive campuses located in Tokyo. Diverse individuals gather here from throughout Japan and around the world. Everyone has their own opinions and ideas to share. Perspectives are broadened greatly through new challenges that encourage students to redefine their personal abilities and limits.
A university is a place that gives you the wings to reach your ambitious dreams. The predecessor of our university, Musashi Institute of Technology, was originally founded in 1929 for students seeking “the ideal of engineering education”. Those students were able to realize their dreams of studying and learning. Since then, for more than 80 years, we have promoted quality engineering education and research worthy of the passion and spirit of our students to train engineers who can contribute to society. In 2009, the university was renamed to Tokyo City University, a comprehensive university with 5 faculties and 16 departments. We have continued to develop, adding the Faculty of Environmental Studies and the Faculty of Informatics in April 2013, as we strive to pass on our traditions of highly-specialized engineering education to train excellent human resources.
