A message from The University of Tokyo
The University of Tokyo (UTokyo) has lead research and education in Japan since our foundation as a national university in 1877. For more than a century, we have been nurturing minds that have gone on to explore space, win Nobel Prizes and expand the frontiers of human knowledge. Today, over 5,500 faculty and over 27,000 students make UTokyo one of the most important global hubs of research and education in one of Asia’s most exciting cities.
UTokyo has long been known as Japan’s premier institution of higher education and for our low student-to-faculty ratio. Our unique liberal arts education provides a sound base in the first half of our four-year undergraduate program, after which our students choose a two-year specialisation in line with their interests. We encourage interdisciplinary approaches throughout.
Our graduate schools provide an excellent environment for first-rate intensive research with the world’s leading researchers, and each graduate student can learn at the cutting edge of their field. In recent years UTokyo has established undergraduate and graduate English-language degree programs, such as our undergraduate PEAK program, further promoting campus diversity.
UTokyo is networked with top universities and research institutions from all parts of the world and the flow of students, research and researchers creates a truly global campus. UTokyo also goes abroad to bring our university to the world, through events such as the UTokyo Forum, held in close partnership with globally renowned academic institutions around the world since 2000.
UTokyo researchers and alumni have expanded the frontiers of human knowledge and their achievements have been recognized in multiple Nobel and other prizes. Yoichiro Nambu and Masatoshi Koshiba have transformed physics, while Kenzaburo Oe and Yasunari Kawabata have enriched global culture through their literary works, to mention just a few. Our website UTokyo Research offers a glimpse into the world of our cutting-edge research.
