ABOUT Sophia University

Sophia's reputation for excellence in undergraduate education, outstanding graduate programs, and a competitive research environment enable it to maintain its ranking as one of Japan's top private universities. Students benefit immensely from the ability to study the latest developments in their chosen field of specialization with distinguished Japanese and international faculty members. Reflecting the quality of their education, Sophia graduates are highly regarded as leaders in the global workplace at multinational companies and international organisations.

Sophia University has offered English-medium programs for more than 60 years. Reflecting the high regard in which its track record as a pioneer in global education is held, the University was recently chosen for a series of subsidy programs being implemented by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports,Science and Technology to internationalize universities in Japan, including the Top Global Universities Project and the Global 30 Project. These programs are helping to further strengthen the University's efforts to boost the global competency of our students.

Over 1,500 international students are studying at Sophia from around the world, and are fostering an internationalised campus culture. The university is also renowned for encouraging Japanese students to study abroad with a broad spectrum of programs. Both incoming and outgoing students will discover how education really comes to life in an international context at Sophia.
