About the Japan Campus

Oldest and largest foreign university in Japan

Temple University, Japan Campus (TUJ), is the oldest and largest foreign university in Japan. Founded in 1982, TUJ has developed into a nationally recognized institution offering an extensive range of educational programs. In addition to its core undergraduate program, TUJ offers graduate programs in law, business, and education; an English-language preparation program; continuing education courses; and corporate education classes.

4,000 learners and counting...

Including the participants in the Corporate Education programs and English traning programs for educational organizations, TUJ is a home for around 4,000 learners. TUJ takes pride in its top-quality, English-language education and in providing a unique opportunity for students to obtain American undergraduate and graduate degrees without leaving Japan.

International student body

One of TUJ's greatest assets is its student body. Students come from approximately 60 countries around the world, including Japan, the United States, East and Southeast Asia, Russia, the Middle East, Africa, Latin America, and Europe. Its diverse student body helps make TUJ a rich, dynamic, and stimulating institution.

Recognized as a Foreign University, Japan Campus

TUJ is the first educational institution in Japan to be officially recognized as a Foreign University, Japan Campus by Japan's Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology. This status allows TUJ to sponsor student visas, enabling international students to study at the university on either a short-term basis (one or two semesters) or a long-term basis (such as to complete a full four-year program).

Superb faculty and small classes

TUJ's superb faculty works closely with students to help them achieve their academic objectives. We organize small classes to facilitate lively discussions and to allow professors to give special attention to students. Moreover, TUJ offers the Temple University brand of education, providing the same course content as that of Temple's main campus and teaching all but its language courses in English. Studying at TUJ offers the same quality education as at Temple University in the United States and makes it easy to transfer to Temple's main campus or to any other North American universities in the U.S. and elsewhere.
