Keio University
What is "Global 30" ?
Rooted in the framework of the "300,000 International Students Plan," enacted by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) and other Japanese ministries, this project was established in 2009 to elevate the international competitiveness of Japanese tertiary education while fostering students and researchers on internationalized campuses so as to give them the ability to play active roles in the global arena. The selected universities are expected to develop themselves as Japan's leading internationalization hubs by providing a high quality of education and an environment that makes it easy for students from other countries to study in Japan. The Global 30 program provides funding support for core universities, which is aimed at elevating their international competitiveness among the world's top universities and at creating an attractive environment for overseas students, while fostering students and researchers capable of playing active international roles. In 2009, Keio University was selected as a Global 30 university.

Internationalization at Keio University
An international dimension has been at the core of Keio University’s activities ever since the establishment of the first university departments headed by three American professors recommended by Harvard University. One hundred and fifty years after its founding, Keio is continuing in its mission of creating individuals who are able to thrive in an international environment.

Summary of proposal:
Establishment of new programs

Three new degree programs delivered in English: 
Strengthening and broadening of international student intake
Keio hopes to attract a greater number of international students through improving its admission process, providing scholarships for international students, increasing opportunities for learning about Japanese culture and offering career guidance and internships.

Improvement of administrative support to meet global standards
Keio plans to further internationalize university administration and to increase the use of English administratively by implementing new career development schemes, including overseas internships for administrative staff; improving the English communication ability of support staff; and translating important documents into English such as the university rules and regulations, and curricula.
