University Overview

Yokohama is Asia’s Gateway to the World. Ever since the port of Yokohama was opened in the 19th century, Yokohama has been a unique crossroad where West meets East. Today, as Japan’s second-largest city, Yokohama is recognized as one of the most exciting cities for its cultural, socio-economic, and infrastructural dynamism.

The practical learning of YNU is based on the deep-rooted history and tradition of Yokohama as a thriving city of trade, commerce, and industry. Fully exploiting the flexibility and adaptability of a mid-sized university of around 10,000 students, YNU carries on the advanced and practical scholarship to cultivate globally competitive talents within a single leafy campus in the metropolitan area.

YNU is highly internationalized with about 1,000 international students from about 80 countries and regions around the world. For those who want to study in English, YNU offers 11 programs in the fields of urban sciences, economics, business administration, law, and infrastructural management. The applicants are required to be proficient in English but do not need any Japanese skills. Students can receive scholarships and financial support from the Japanese Government (MEXT), Japan Student Service Organization (JASSO), Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), the World Bank, and foreign governments. Also, there is a unique program called “Global Doctoral Program for Academic Career Support (GDACS)”, a doctoral program for faculty members of universities in emerging nations. Applicants do not need to pay application fees and successful applicants are exempt from admission and tuition fees.

Furthermore, YNU has signed academic exchange agreements with over 140 universities worldwide, and about 300 researchers are accepted to YNU from universities outside of Japan every year.

YNU will continuously strive to be a vibrant educational hub with a diverse student body and will continue to disseminate world-class educational and research achievements to create a better future.
