Study Abroad Program

Program Overview

Toyo University was founded by Dr. Enryo Inoue in 1887 as Academy of Philosophy in Tokyo with the basic spirit, “The basis of all learning lies in philosophy.” It has now become a comprehensive university consisting of 13 faculties and 15 graduate schools in its five campuses with some 30,000 students, including approximately 1200 international students. In 2014 Toyo was selected by the MEXT (Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology) as one of the 37 universities nationwide for the Top Global University project.
