Dual Language Education
No Japanese language ability is required for admission to APU as almost all classes are offered in both English and Japanese. At the undergraduate level, students enter their chosen course on either an English or Japanese language basis and then given training in the alternative language if need be. As each student’s language proficiency progresses, specialized classes can then be taken in either language. Within the Graduated School all classes are conducted entirely in English.
The campus is a doorway to the wider world attracting students and teachers from around ninety countries and regions, making up nearly 50% of our student body and faculty. This rich mixture of languages and the mingling of different cultures has lead to APU's campus being known as ‘the global village’.
APU has an unprecedented career success rate for international students. For the last 3 years, over 95% of our graduates using the careers service have gained employment upon graduation. Our Careers Office offers comprehensive support through internships, lectures and also by attracting hundreds of companies to campus each year.
