On Thursday, March 23 at 17:00, it was announced that for the 2nd consecutive year APU ranked #1 for Environment in the Japan University Rankings 2023, released by the Times Higher Education (THE), a British journal specializing in higher education. Moreover, of the 271 schools surveyed, APU moved up one rank from last year to rank 4th among all private universities in Japan, and 1st among private universities in western Japan for the sixth consecutive year. The overall ranking rose two places from 24th to 22nd.
This is the 2nd year APU took the nation’s top spot in the pillar of Environment, a category that "looks at the make-up of the student and faculty body at each campus, helping students to determine whether they will find themselves in a diverse, supportive, and inclusive university environment." The university strived to maintain its multicultural and multinational learning environment even under the pandemic, and in fall of 2022, for the first time since APU’s opening, over 100 countries and regions were represented on campus at the same time. We believe that the realization of this multicultural environment where students from 103 countries and regions led to the high evaluation of our environment once again.
In the pillar of Engagement, which considers the degree of satisfaction of current students as well as reputation among high school teachers, APU ranked 3rd in Japan for the 3rd consecutive year.
