☆Tsuda University was ranked No. 1 among the private women’s universities in THE Japan University Rankings 2020
 Tsuda University was ranked No. 1 among the private women’s universities in the Times Higher Education Japan University Rankings. Its overall ranking was 44, 13 places up from last year’s ranking of 57.
 This ranking consists of 4 elements: Resources, Engagement, Outcomes, and Environment. Tsuda University was ranked No. 15 in the Engagement ranking, which includes evaluations from students through student surveys, and No. 1 among the women’s universities in both the Engagement and Outcomes rankings, the latter of which is based on evaluations from companies and researchers. These high rankings are probably due to the fact that since our foundation in 1900, we have fostered our students' individuality by keeping classes small, and we have produced graduates who have been drivers of change in society.
 We will continue to work on enhancing and strengthening our education.

Student life support

Off-Campus Learning Center

Students often wonder how they can best spend their 4 years of study at university. Off-campus learning activities are one way for our students to design their own learning experiences and find their own rhythm for their lives as students. By combining their second term, in which no mandatory classes are required, with the summer vacation, a 2-month "gap term" is created. Students can use this period to take part in overseas summer programs or internships as well as conduct research with professors or carry out projects of their own design. The goal of off-campus learning is for students to cultivate empathy, a proactive mindset, and communication skills, as well as the ability to analyze social issues.

Center for International Exchange

The Center for International Exchange promotes and supports Tsuda University's international exchange programs with overseas institutions. The Center provides information for study abroad opportunities with partner institutions and international exchange programs around the world. Students can receive support for implementing a high quality plan that suits their individual needs. The center also provides support for international students studying at Tsuda University as well as opportunities for interaction and exchange among international students and Japanese students.

Writing Center

The Writing Center not only supports students' writing activities, but also helps them to cultivate more refined thinking, expression, and communication skills that they will need to become women in leadership positions in society. Students work one-by-one with instructors who help them improve both their Japanese and English writing skills. In addition to assigned essays and class reports, students can ask for help with written material of any kind, including application essays for study abroad courses, club activity plans, and documents needed in applying for internships or job-hunting.
