Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University

About the University
Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University (APU) was established in April 2000 under the principals of “freedom, peace, and humanity”, “international mutual understanding” and “the future shape of the Asia Pacific region”. In the years that followed, the university has continued to play an important role in educating future global leaders. Nearly 50% of students and faculty at APU are international, representing over 80 countries and regions, making it one of the most diverse learning environments in the region. The university offers courses in the fields of business and social studies, taught by world-class faculty. There are also many opportunities available for students to continue their education outside the classroom. We call this “active learning”. APU’s commitment to nurture highly skilled individuals who will play an active role on the global stage is evident in the unprecedented 90% career success rate of its graduates.
 
Programs / Services for International Students
At APU, knowledge of Japanese is not a pre-requisite for admission. After enrollment, intensive training is part of the curriculum to master the language while taking courses in English. Almost all classes are offered in both English and Japanese. Graduate school courses are offered entirely in English. International students are required to spend their first year at the university dormitory where they make friends and learn the rules and regulations of life in Japan before going on to live in Beppu city. The university also encourages international students to actively interact with the local community by organizing home stays, exchange programs and part-time work. The career office also grooms students seeking employment for life outside campus as full-fledged professionals. Even after graduation, the APU connection is kept alive via the Alumni Association.
