The University of Tokyo

Public research university.

The University of Tokyo is Japan's top university, a world-class center for research, and a vibrant academic community.

World-class research:

Our researchers have been at the forefront of their fields since our foundation in 1877. Today, their cutting-edge research regularly appears in top international journals and has earned multiple Nobel Prizes. Research at the University of Tokyo across the arts and sciences is both broad and deep, as specialist knowledge is shared across traditional boundaries to further human understanding.

A robust education:

Our undergraduate education emphasizes the liberal arts for the acquisition of strong communication skills, a sound ethical framework, and interdisciplinary awareness, together creating a solid foundation for specialized knowledge. Volunteer activities, internships and other off-campus experiences are an increasingly important part of our education.
