List of Overseas Schools with an Academic Exchange Agreement
Currently, Asia University has reached an academic exchange agreement with 67 universities and institutions overseas. At our university, we actively accept international students, and we rank at the top in the nation in terms of the ratio between the total number of students and the number of international students. In particular, there are many students from Asia, and as a result, we are true to our Founding Principle of “Contributing to Asia.” Furthermore, we facilitate various study abroad programs of our own which are unique and original. There is the America Program (AUAP) where we have sent over 13,000 students up to now, and the study abroad program that sends students to 14 different countries (AUGP). In addition, we have the one year exchange/dispatch study abroad program, called "Asia University Exchange Program (AUEP)", and “ASIA YUME COLLEGE (AUCP)” facilitates a study abroad program in China’s Dalian University of Foreign Languages as well as an internship program with a Japanese company. We are putting a lot of effort into developing global human resources who can play an active role in Asia and around the world in their future.
Acceptance of International Students
Asia University actively accepts students from all over the world. Specifically, there are many students from Asia, and as a result, we are true to our Founding Principle of “Contributing to Asia.” The presence of many international students gives an international flare to the campus, and through daily contact with students from all over the world, our Japanese students are also able to deepen their understanding of different cultures. There are also affiliated associations that are run by international students, further encouraging mutual exchanges with Japanese students.
Additionally, the institution is fundamentally set up to accept foreign students, through programs such as the Intensive Japanese Course, where a student seeking admission into our regular university studies Japanese for one year, and we also have dormitories for international students, and scholarships.

Acceptance of Foreign Students
In 1954, Chinese Student Services was opened in what had been Asia University’s predecessor, Nihon Junior College of Economics. The College took the initiative in the area of education for international students in post-war Japan, by accepting 96 students from Hong Kong. To date, more than 5,000 international students have graduated from our institution, and they have been playing an active role in Japan and around the world. We have reached an academic exchange agreement with 78 universities spanning over 19 countries and nations, and we actively facilitate exchange programs for students as well as for faculty members. The Intensive Japanese Course, which has been designed for students who primarily want to learn Japanese, boasts a long history and tradition. We enroll 60 students every year, starting with Mongolia, Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, and students from other Asian countries. There are also students from the United States, and France. Students have the option to continue studying Japanese after being admitted to the regular college, and this allows them to learn technical jargon and study how to write theses while they are continuing to be taught in the subjects of their specific area of study.
