Japan University Rankings 2022 table information

March 24, 2022

Our rankings table includes information on the following:

Number of students

This is the number of full-time equivalent students at the university.

Student-to-staff ratio

This is the ratio of full-time equivalent students to the number of full-time equivalent academic staff. Academic staff is defined as those employed in an academic post, for example assistant professor, associate professor and professor.

Proportion of international students

The percentage of students at the university originating from outside Japan.

Finance per student (in ¥1,000s)

This is the amount of institutional income (includes all forms of income, such as general university funds, grant income, research income, contract income, teaching income, donations, investments and commercial income) per full-time equivalent student.

For information on the pillars and metrics, read the Japan University Rankings 2022 methodology.

Editor’s note: March 2022

In 2018, several institutions ranked in this year’s Japan University Rankings were found to have been using discriminatory admissions practices, unfairly advantaging male applicants. As a result, those institutions lost accredited status from the Japan University Accreditation Association. They continue to be included in the ranking table as loss of accreditation does not prevent them from teaching undergraduates and issuing valid degrees recognised within Japan.

The ranked institutions that had their accreditation revoked are listed in the table below. This table will be updated as the universities regain their accreditation.
