TUJ recognition as a ‘Foreign University, Japan Campus’ leads to visas, railway benefits
Japan’s Ministry of Justice recently granted Temple University Japan the right to sponsor student visas. In mid-March, two TUJ students became the first to receive student visas, which will now enable students from the United States and around the world to pursue full degree programs at TUJ.
Since its establishment, TUJ has offered an undergraduate program, graduate programs in law and education, an executive M.B.A., an academic preparation program, a continuing education program and a corporate education program.
Being able to sponsor student visas is the second benefit that TUJ has received since its Feb. 14 recognition by Japan’s Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology as a Foreign University, Japan Campus.
It follows the late-February granting of commuting-pass discounts to TUJ students by JR East and other private railway companies in eastern Japan, giving TUJ students the same privilege that students attending Japanese universities and colleges have long enjoyed.
