Founded in 1882 at the heart of Tokyo, WASEDA University is recognized as one of the most international universities in Japan. From 2014, Waseda started a four-week summer session at the undergraduate level. We welcomed 135 highly motivated international students in 2023 and we plan to recruit 200 international students for the Summer Session 2024 and expand its period to six-week.

Together with Waseda students, participating students will fully explore Waseda and Tokyo, which is consistently ranked high among the best cities to visit in the world.

You can take part in the courses which cover a variety of interests including business, culture, economics, history, literature and art, politics and sociology in the context of Japan and Asia. The courses are taught in English by experienced faculty members from Waseda and visiting professors from the top global universities.
