A Frontrunner in International and Liberal Arts Education in a Global Age
The FLA is the pioneering program in international education in Japan. Students come from various backgrounds and are multicultural; some have been abroad for years and others lived in Japan all their life. The faculty is also international and very diverse, more than 50% of its members are from overseas, bringing with them a great deal of diverse cultural experiences.

The FLA provides a holistic education to nurture students who are globally minded and international. Students are trained to become all rounded individuals who are capable of critical thinking and verbalizing their thoughts and opinions. The application of those skills are not limited to just a certain field, and students are not simply trained only for job market. They are cultivated as all-rounded human beings to contribute to the society and live a meaningful life.
What makes the FLA unique is that the diversity is baked into its very concept. The core of FLA education teaches students to pay a great deal of respect for others who are different, and to understand it is okay for everyone to be different from each other.
FLA is an ideal place for students to immerse themselves into Tokyo life since all the exciting spots are accessible from the campus just in a few strolls. While FLA offers a location in the heart of Tokyo, with its relatively small student body, there is also a sense of unity and companionship.
FLA offers a genuinely cosmopolitan environment with real internal diversity and a sense of open-mindedness. Students are not governed by uniformity and conformity. Everyone is encouraged to express their opinions and all members are very intellectually curious.
