Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University, more commonly known as APU, is a Japanese university located in Beppu, in the west of the country. With almost half of its student body and faculty being non-Japanese, APU is an international haven for the exchange of cultures and ideas, and for personal development. With APU, you will be able to start or continue your Bachelor’s, Master’s or PhD degree in the land of the rising sun and experience, during your studies, a culture full of traditions, history and celebrations. And all of this without any knowledge of the Japanese language! Indeed, at APU, all courses can be taken either in English or in Japanese.

 

In addition to studying entirely in English, you will have the opportunity to live in the beautiful city of Beppu.





EMBRACE BEPPU:

A PLACE OF EXCEPTION

Have you always dreamed of diving into an onsen? Well, Beppu has no less than 2000 of them and has the highest number of them in the world. And with its architecture and historical charm, you will not find a better place to experience traditional Japanese life. Located in Kyushu, Japan’s southernmost large island, Beppu is a coastal city nested between mountains, the ocean and forests. The city offers an exceptional natural environment for students seeking serenity, nature and breathtaking sceneries. But for the more urban and active among you, the city organizes many festivals, sporting events and other activities throughout the year that will bring you closer to the community. Also, if you seek entertainment, the town offers many options, such as shopping malls, cafés, karaoke, bowling, and restaurants with international food. All of this with the added benefit of being a city where life is affordable and where you can feel safe and happy.

Beppu, where APU is located, is a place of exception

In Beppu, city of APU, the community is warm and welcoming

A WARM AND WELCOMING COMMUNITY

In Beppu, you will feel at home. The locals here are used to tourism and are delighted to see so many foreigners, especially with the numerous students at the APU campus, and enjoy living and sharing with them. Many of the locals have fled the big cities, with their rush-hour traffic and hurrying people, and moved to Beppu where the community is known for its particularly warm and friendly hospitality as only rural townspeople can be.

BEYOND TRADITIONAL TEACHING:

At APU, education is not just about memorizing textbook content and showing up to class. The student is at the heart of the educational system: at APU, you will be expected to communicate with your peers and faculty, to debate and share your ideas in an educational environment where students from all over the world, from different cultures and from different socio-economic backgrounds are brought together. To make an impact in the world, you must first know it.
With this idea, students can get involved in various opportunities such as field studies, conferences, exchange programs, competitions, internships and many others.
