Asia University emphasizes relationships with other countries, and therefore focuses on international exchange in education.

With a school motto and policy of “JIJYO DORYOKU” meaning “improve oneself” while being considerate of others, they nurture people into becoming bridges between Japan and their own home countries by always challenging them with new ideas.

They further support students by offering their own scholarship awards which help in the reduction and/or exemption of tuition fees.
