Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University International Undergraduate Admissions

Study Abroad

APU offers various educational programs that focus on active experience and practical learning, ranging from cultural study trips to domestic and international field work and internships. The University also makes use of its vast global network to provide regional and international study exchange programs.

Field Study

During the semesters and summer/winter sessions, you can participate in a field study program in which students will be led by an instructor to carry out research and analysis outside the campus. These programs will lead you to various Japanese and international locations and help you deepen your knowledge of the local area as well as of the topic and research techniques.


Here are some programs held in the past:

Program Location Time
Environmental Studies of Deserts, Mangrove Forests, Coral Reefs and Persian Gulf Management in Iran Iran 2013AY

Freshman Intercultural Relations Study Trip (FIRST) Program

The FIRST Program is available for both Japanese and international students in different study locations. While Japanese students go overseas, international students will be exploring the Kyushu island of Japan. In the program, participants will travel in groups with the support of a Teaching Assistant (TA), who is a selected senior student. During a four-day period, participants are expected to meet and interact with over 100 local people and conduct research on designated topics. Students who have joined this program have said that they have all grown tremendously through this experience. It is definitely a program that you should participate in.

Exchange Programs

Build your international portfolio by joining a study exchange program for a semester or a year at one of our international or Japanese partner universities. Thanks to APU Student Exchange Agreements, you will only need to pay APU tuition and be exempted from tuition at the host university. If you are awarded an APU Tuition Reduction Scholarship, it will remain valid during your time on the exchange program.

Double Degree Programs

The only thing better than getting a degree from one international university is getting two degrees from two international universities at the same time. This option is available for both APS and APM students by signing up for one of APU’s double degree programs. Double degree programs are available for APS students with Salzburg University of Applied Sciences in Austria and St. Edward’s University in the United States. A double degree is available for APM students with the NEOMA Business School in France.
