Teikyo University was founded in 1966. Originally it had just two faculties: the Faculty of Liberal Arts, with English Literature and Japanese Literature departments, and the Faculty of Economics and Department of Economics.
Starting with faculties of Economics and Liberal Arts, Teikyo University has been developing as a solid comprehensive university, offering a wide range of additional programs including School of Medicine.
Since we make defining goals and employability a priority early on, we give guidance to all new students with personalized career design maps designed for new students. We allow students the opportunity to think about the person they want to become with our mandatory "Designing Life Practice I/II" course, and improve employability with our comprehensive personal development support (career education).
Teikyo University provides a rich and stimulating environment for students with a wealth of modern and well-appointed facilities including specialized research laboratories and training centers in all fields. Students are encouraged to extend and challenge themselves through research and study on a daily basis.
The University does not have its own accommodation facilities; however we can arrange accommodation at designated properties.
The Itabashi Campus library, also known as the Teikyo University Medical Library, was formed in April 2012 through the merger of the former medicine and pharmacology libraries. The new library, consisting primarily of medical texts as well as e-books and e-journals, services the three faculties on campus (Medicine, Pharma-Science and Medical Technology) as well as the Teikyo group in general.
The Computer laboratory helps graduate students study and research more comfortably and efficiently. The 16 PCs are equipped with integrated development environment and integrated computing environments through software such as Visual Studio, Eclipse, MATLAB/Simulink, and Mathematica. The lab is open outside of class hours for student use.
Teikyo University operates six hospitals equipped with the latest equipment and advanced medical practices to provide a tailored health care program for every patient. These facilities also supply the medical teams that are sent to provide assistance during emergencies and natural disasters.
The University has grown and expanded considerably over the years and now boasts a broad range of faculties and departments spread over five campuses at Itabashi, Hachioji, Utsunomiya, Fukuoka and Kasumigaseki.
Teikyo University is committed to engaging with the local community through the medium of sport. Students and teaching staff train side by side at sports clubs, which also provide training sessions and classes for the general public. The University also contributes to professional sporting activities in the community.
