Mar 31, 2017

Times Higher Education, or THE, is one of the leading providers of higher education data for the world's higher education institutions. Every year they release global and regional ranking for colleges and universities around the world. This year, they released their first ever Times Higher Education Japan University Rankings. For this, THE analyzed and ranked 406 universities, looking at 11 performance metrics that are designed to help students and their families when deciding who to trust with their education.

APU ranked an impressive 24th overall, earning high scores in categories such as outcomes, and taking the top position in the category of environment, which looks at proportions of international students and staff. According to THE's data (from March 2016), 46.5 percent of APU’s students are international, which is far more than any other Japanese institution. The next highest university trails APU by a long margin, at 14.9 percent.
