APU's new initiative starts here.
Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University (APU) was established in 2000 with the founding principles of "Freedom, Peace, and Humanity", "International Mutual Understanding" and "the future shape of the Asia Pacific region". Since then, we have created a completely new multicultural and multilingual environment.
So far, students from more than 150 countries and regions around the world have overcome differences in countries, cultures, religions, politics, values; have lived together, and learned to solve the complex problems the world is facing.
