Where you'll study

Waseda University is a private school in central Tokyo that puts a high priority on studying abroad. It actively recruits international students and expects Japanese students to study abroad. International students include nearly one-third of Waseda’s student body, creating an environment where people of many cultures and backgrounds exchange ideas. The Center for International Education offers field trips, cultural events, language partners, and tutorial help. When it’s time to study, spread out your books in the Tokorozawa Library, which features relaxation spaces, open-air commons, and group study areas overlooking the green campus landscape.
