Support Schemes for Foreign StudentsFor worry-free concentration on academic pursuits

The philosopher Enryo Inoue, the university's founder, established the "Philosophy Academy" with the aim of providing open education "to those without surplus money or leisure" (i.e., to people who lack the financial resources or time needed for an education).

Inheriting this spirit, Toyo University has numerous support systems in place to accommodate the passion for learning that students from around the world bring. These systems cover a broad range of areas, starting with reduced tuition fees and extending to academic subjects for foreign students, student exchanges, medical care, and housing.
