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 rankings for colleges and universities around the world. For their second annual Japan University Rankings, THE looked at the four categories of Resources, Engagement, Outcomes, and Environment. These indicators are designed to help students and their families when deciding who to trust with their education.
APU ranked 5th among private universities, earning high scores in categories such as Engagement. Among all Japanese universities, APU placed 21st. APU also placed at the top of private institutions in the Environment category. This metric looks at the proportion of international students and staff, number of students in international exchange programs, and classes taught in languages besides Japanese. According to THE's data, 53.4 percent of APU’s students are international, which is substantially more than any other Japanese institution. The next highest university trails APU at 38.9 percent.
“This ranking is recognition of APU’s endeavors across many different fields. I would like to thank everyone for their efforts,” said President Deguchi.
