Student Interview

Waseda University was founded in 1882. Since its establishment, Waseda has been sending its students around the world as international students, while at the same time actively welcoming international students from around the globe. Significantly, this tradition of openness to the world continues to the present day.

The "melting pot of people" is a phrase that refers to the gathering of many kinds of people. Similarly, Waseda's University Campus is "melting pot of human talent", with high spirited and talented people from every part of Japan, as well as industrious researchers and students from around the world who gather and overcome ethnic and linguistic barriers.
Embodying the spirit of these words, Waseda University strives for mutual cultivation of the "melting pot of human talent" by the interaction of different nationalities, ethnic groups, regions, sexes, abilities and points of view.
