Temple University Japan now ‘foreign university’

Date Posted: 2005-02-18

Temple University Japan, which has operated as a “miscellaneous school” under Japanese law for more than two decades, now has a new status.

The Japan Foreign Ministry, in a sweeping policy change, Monday designated the American University a “foreign university”. The change, says the Kyodo News, will allow alumni of Temple University to apply to public graduate schools in the country. The Philadelphia, Pennsylvania school has operated its Tokyo branch since 1982.

As the first ever foreign university in Japan approved by the Education Ministry, Temple University Japan becomes the first foreign university's branch where its course credits will also be recognized by Japanese universities. Temple University Japan now has 2,100 students in Tokyo, Osaka and Fukuoka. School officials confirm that about two-thirds are Japanese citizens.
