What is THE World University Rankings?

The Times Higher Education Japan University Rankings use a balanced scorecard approach, with 16 individual performance indicators combining to create an overall score that reflects the broad strength of an institution


This pillar looks at the make-up of the student and staff body at each campus, helping students to determine whether they will find themselves in a diverse, supportive and inclusive university environment.

  • Ratio of Foreign Students
  • Ratio of foreign faculty members
  • Ratio of Japanese students studying abroad
  • Ratio of courses offered in foreign languages

This pillar measures opinions of the university from two sources: the High School Advisors Survey and the Japan Student Survey.

  • Student survey (faculty/student interaction, enrichment of classes and instruction, opportunities for collaborative learning)
  • Reputation survey of high school teachers (emphasis on global human resources development, ability development after enrollment)
