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 170 highly motivated international students from 83 universities in 22 different countries and regions around the world in 2019 and we plan to recruit 140 international students for the Summer Session to be held in 2023.

We had to cancel the summer session for three years due to the pandemic of COVID19, yet in 2023,
we decided to hold Waseda Summer Session 2023 after thorough measures against the infection.
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.
