The Graduate Institute and the Graduate School of Asia-Pacific Studies at Waseda University have concluded a partnership.
One of the Graduate Institute’s most valuable assets is its network of academic and other partners around the world. This network enables exchanges of students and faculty members across institutions, academic and research cooperation, and the promotion of good practice in educational programme development. It is key for cross-fertilisation of ideas and fostering genuine internationalism.
It is in this spirit that the Graduate Institute and the Graduate School of Asia-Pacific Studies at Waseda University (GSAPS) have entered into partnership. Under the agreement, two students per year from each institution may enrol in the student exchange programme and, if selected, elect to study for a semester or a whole year in the host institution. Faculty members and administrative staff are also eligible to apply to the exchange programme which seeks to promote academic cooperation and educational development.
Founded in 1998, the Graduate School of Asia Pacific-Studies at Waseda University is unique in Japan, thanks to its specific focus on the Asia-Pacific region. GSAPS offers Masters and Ph.D. courses in history, politics, economics, industry, management, society, culture and international affairs. Teaching is bilingual with courses offered in English and Japanese. The student body is highly cosmopolitan with students drawn from throughout Asia and the rest of the world. In the last decade, GSAPS has awarded 49 Ph.D.s and 1,230 MA degrees.
