Waseda University is a leading institution in Japan, founded in 1882 with three principles: academic independence, practical innovation, and the shaping of open-minded citizens; aiming to provide the world with progressive leaders.
Waseda has stayed true to these ideals, educating seven prime ministers and countless other politicians, business leaders, journalists, diplomats, scholars, scientists, inventors, actors, writers and artists.
Waseda's history and tradition is to tirelessly challenge convention, in favor of progression and innovation. By its 150th anniversary in 2032, the University has committed to expanding its leadership in Asia and around the world.
