Japanese Universities.

See a comprehensive listing of universities in Japan, including foreign universities in Japan. Included on this page are universities in Aichi, Akita, Aomori, Chiba, Ehime, Fukui, Fukuoka and Fukushima prefectures.

Japanese universities may be four-year universities (daigaku 大学) or two year universities known as (tankidaigaku 短期大学) or Junior Colleges.

The majority of universities in Japan are private institutions but each prefecture may have one or two national or prefectural universities, usually located in the prefectural capital, where in general standards of students are higher and fees are lower.

Students do not live on campus and in general most Japanese students stay at home and commute to their studies at a local university or college.

The state universities and better private universities do attract students from all over Japan who will leave home and live in dormitories or private rented accommodation.

The Japanese school year begins in April and at university level consists of two semesters of 15 weeks. University entrance examinations are held in February with the national Center Exam held in January. Student university festivals take place in the autumn, usually in November.
