Tokyo International University

Tokyo International University

Tokyo International University was founded in 1965 with a focus on business and commerce, and upon earning accreditation from the Ministry of Education (MEXT) the college has grown into a private university that now encompasses five undergraduate schools and four graduate schools.

Tokyo International Universityʼs E-Track Program began in 2014 with the primary focus of providing students from all around the world with the opportunity to earn a 4-year Bachelorʼs Degree with majors of Business Economics and International Relations in an all-English curriculum from the heart of Japan. Under TIU’s E-Track Program, you can pursue your Bachelor’s Degree in Japan conducted in 100% English. This means that even if you have no Japanese language proficiency, you can still apply for the courses in TIU!

School Location

TIU’s E-Track campus is located at Kawagoe-shi, Saitama!

Kawagoe is a Tokyo suburb. This provides students with a quiet and conducive environment to study in. in addition, it only takes about 50 mins to the central of Tokyo. Truly the best of both worlds!

Ikebukuro International Campus is opening in 2023!!!

Tokyo International University will be establishing a new Urban International Campus in the Ikebukuro Metropolitan Area where the university’s educational globalisation efforts will be centralised. The university participated in a development contest to adopt part of the former mint bureau site, neighbouring Sunshine City, and TIU’s plan successfully won the competition. This land was handed to the university in October 2020, and the campus facilities are set to open in September 2023.

The English Track Program as well as other educational globalisation functions will be centralised in this new campus. The university is planning to relocate half of the student body (roughly 3,500 of 7,000 students), and amongst those 3,500 students, the aim is 2,000 international students from over 100 countries. The plan also includes educators and researchers recruited from around the world, which will further enhance international “brain circulation” in line with Japan’s national policy.

This new campus will be directly linked to the Kawagoe Campus via the Tobu Tojo Line as well as the Tokyo Metro Yurakucho Line. Furthermore, all types of programs will be opened throughout the Kawagoe, Sakado, and Ikebukuro International Campuses.

The creation of this Urban International Campus in Ikebukuro will dramatically strengthen the foundation of the globalised education already present in TIU’s Kawagoe and Sakado Campuses, as well as bolster the overall globalisation of the Ikebukuro Metropolitan Area.

As a supplement to the knowledge of new languages acquired through practice and self-study in the classroom, it is widely known that creating a network within the society of the language in focus is crucial towards proficiency of new languages.
