Facts and Figures

Showa Women’s University welcomes both degree seeking students and international students currently studying at universities abroad who wish to spend a semester or two in Japan.
The diverse values that foreign students bring are a valuable asset for the globalization of the university.
In order to welcome more international students, we will revise the admission system, and strengthen the acceptance of government-funded international students and create new non-degree programs for those starting to learn Japanese.
