Temple U. First to Officially Fit In

The education ministry announced yesterday that Temple University Japan is to be the first school officially designated under a new regulation as a "Gaikoku Daigaku no Nihonko" (Japanese School of a Foreign University). The designation will allow students to enter Japanese graduate schools or to transfer credits to another university in Japan. Among the basic requirements for qualification, the institution in Japan must award the same degrees as the parent school in the home country. Until the new regulation was introduced at the end of last year, Japan-based schools of foreign universities had no official place in the Japanese education system. Temple University Japan is one of the international campuses of the Pennsylvania university, and was established in Tokyo in 1982. It currently has around 2,100 students, of whom about two thirds are Japanese.
