Temple University, Japan Campus
TUJ offers the unique opportunity to receive an American university education in Tokyo. Established in 1982, but moved to a brand new campus, in Setakaya-ku, Tokyo, in the fall of 2019 (the campus had it's one year birthday on August 14th!). The new campus delivered a brand new, purpose-built facility in one of Tokyo's most popular wards for TUJ students. Students from around the world come to TUJ for its unique mix of academic rigor, central Tokyo location, and Japanese cultural immersion. All classes at TUJ are taught in English and no Japanese proficiency is required to start. Approximately 70 countries and regions are represented in the student body. Small classes of around 21 students each encourage student participation and allow faculty to provide individualized attention. TUJ is also excited to announce they will be welcoming their new Dean, Mr. Matthew Wilson in September 2020.
