Tokyo Schools


For those of you planning on moving to Tokyo, the educational needs of your children must be one of your top priorities. But you need not worry as Tokyo has a large number of international schools that cater to the needs of foreign children.

Tokyo also has a large number of colleges and universities . In fact, the concentration of universities in one city (Tokyo) is one of the highest in the world. All the universities of Tokyo are famous, although some are more prestigious than others.


Admissions to the universities of Tokyo are highly selective and competitive. There is an entrance exam and those students with the highest scores enter the most prestigious universities (like Tokyo, Waseda, and Keio). The students, who score lower, enter the next level of universities (like Meiji, Aoyama Gakuin, and Chuo). Those with still lower scores enter the third level universities, and so on.


Foreign students wishing to enter universities in Tokyo have a separate entrance exam. Compared to the exams for Japanese students, those for foreign students are easier. Some universities admit foreign students without a test, but then the choice is narrow. It is, therefore, best to take the test.
