The number of Japanese universities offering undergraduate and postgraduate courses that can be completed totally or partially in English is increasing every year.

The Japan Student Services Organization (JASSO), an independent administrative institution that mainly provides scholarship and support programs for both international and domestic students, has been compiling a list of such university courses.

Rather than gathering information into statistical data that can be used to compare the numbers with previous years, the sole purpose of the list is to make it easier for international students to find the best destinations for their studies.
