Welcome to Meiji University
Meiji University aims to establish an "Intellectual Global Common", where people from all over the world can gather to advance research and education. We will form a foundation for transmitting Japanese culture, technology and intellectual property to the world. Under the educational policy of "empowerment of the individual", we will develop our students’ ability to play an active role in international society, in multinational environments. Through these efforts, we will contribute to the sustainable growth and prosperity of the world.
Currently, more than 800 foreign students are studying in Meiji University and we have more than 110 universities as our partner universities all over the world. We cooperate with each other to make education and research further sophisticated. Meiji University has been chosen as one of the G30 project universities by the government, and currently we are making every effort to be a core university for the internationalization of Japan’s higher education.
We have 3 campuses: Surugadai, Izumi, and Ikuta. Surugadai Campus is located right in the heart of Tokyo, an exiting city, which charms people from all over the world, and surrounded by historic and impressive sites, such as ancient shrines, museums, and Akihabara which is famous as the mecca of subcultures.
We will "open up" to the world and enhance globalization. We provide degree-programs in English and enhance the quality of Japanese language education as well. We assure you that studying and doing research with us will improve your qualifications and contribute to a more comfortable life style.We are looking forward to seeing you soon in Tokyo.

Organization for International Collaboration
The Organization for International Collaboration opened its doors on October 1st, 2009. As international competition in higher education heats up, it is becoming increasingly essential at Meiji University to recognize the importance of raising our international profile, by raising our research to a higher level and producing graduates who can perform on the international stage. The Organization for International Collaboration is the body at Meiji University which is responsible for promoting internationalization in a systematic and organized way.
The Organization for International Collaboration consists of three sections: the Headquarters of International Collaboration, the International Student Exchange Center, and the Japanese Language Education Center.
The Headquarters of International Collaboration plans international academic, research, and educational collaborations. In other words it acts as a base for internationalization by forging links with higher educational bodies in other countries, and is also involved in such activities as holding academic conferences and lectures with guest lecturers from abroad.
The International Student Exchange Center promotes international education to a higher level by supporting international exchange of students from other countries and in turn, sending Meiji students on exchanges to foreign countries.
It is thanks to these bodies and their collaborations with both undergraduate and graduate schools that internationalization is becoming a reality throughout Meiji University.
