Surrounded by the beautiful nature of northern Japan, Akita International University, AIU, is a window to the world. Unique in Japan for offering an International Liberal Arts education entirely in English, we are on the cutting edge of Japanese higher education.

AIU has many Partner Institutions around the world. Through exchanges with these schools, we expand our students' intercultural horizons. All of our undergraduate stuents spend a year studying abroad, and about a quarter of our student body is made up of international exchange students (168 students from 33 countries, as of spring 2016). This truly international academic community, combined with state-of-the-art facilities, a diverse faculty with over half of our faculty hailing from overseas, and innovative programs, makes it an ideal place to study.

For a brief overview of the AIU exchange program, please see our 2016 Fact Sheet (Updated September 2016)

Come to AIU and experience Japan for a summer, a semester, a year, or four years, as you build the knowledge and skills vital to succeed in the global society!
