PHAM VAN TRUONG (Class of 2021)
Studying abroad in Japan under the spread of COVID-19, everything is beyond my expectation. Having been confronted with an unprecedented and uncertain situation brought by the pandemic, Rikkyo University offered great support to students such as Learning Environment Scholarship, internet equipment, software license that serve our best convenience in studying.
It is also an opportunity to prove how excellently world-class faculty members adjust their teaching styles and how considerate professional MPMA office staff are. Interestingly, we receive more practical lectures even the classes are conducted entirely online.
Although social distance measures are applied, we are still able to access Rikkyo Library - one of the largest university libraries in Japan, fully equipped study rooms, modern sports facilities, instrumental field trips, and so on.
I am pretty sure I spend my fruitful academic life with an incredibly rewarding experience at Rikkyo University.
Out of all my experiences studying, Rikkyo University has been till date the best university ever attended in my life. I fully enjoyed each of the single days spent on the campus. The staff and faculty are amazing. My senseis (as I love to call my professors) were highly talented, sociable and understandable. The library and the study room are calm places where we could concentrate to study. The MPMA program gives the opportunity to choose from a range of courses with the guidance of the supervisor. The program is very flexible however each course requires hard work and discipline to achieve excellence.
I had the chance to be part of a multinational and multicultural class which enhanced my open-minded spirit and fostered my sense of diversity. I had awesome and brilliant classmates with whom I could build up great friend relationships.
I got the opportunity to participate in different programs such as the welcome parties organized by both MPMA staff and lady’s club team. I also joined some volunteering activities. The international office sometimes has activities such as green tea ceremonies, games activities and many others to improve student’s integration. Rikkyo is not just a university, it is a life building community and I am forever grateful to God for having been part of this community.
PHAN THUY DUONG (Class of 2020)
Rikkyo University had become my dream since I asked for the scholarship in Japan because of its beauty and history. And on the day, I have gone through the curve gate of the main building, I know that I can touch my dream. This is such a convenient and fancy university with great people. My Professor is nice and willing to help me once I have the questions. Staffs from MPMA have good looking and always feedback your request with their smile. I like the huge library best with fantastic corners that serve for all your needs from separation to gathering such as CD rooms, teamwork rooms, workshop space or even relax chairs for napping… Rikkyo is fabulous in all seasons of the year, especially in Sakura and Fall. I am sure that you can spend several hours on the campus and collect hundreds of photos.
This is not only an academic environment but the place where you enjoy your life.

I am very grateful to be part of Rikkyo University. Rikkyo University offers beauty, hospitality, and convenience in one package. For example, Rikkyo University offers very interesting events especially for international students, such as field trips, sumo shows and so on, and it brings us the great opportunity to get acquainted with other international students. The facilities are very good, modern and well-equipped, such as libraries, study rooms, health facilities, classrooms, gyms, canteens, and also a prayer room. The staffs are so friendly and attentive for student's needs, and everything from registration to lectures is carried out very systematically and well organized. Furthermore, the campus is located in the Ikebukuro area which is part of downtown Tokyo, so it’s easy to access other public facilities in Tokyo. As a student, I couldn't expect better than this. The experience that I got at Rikkyo University is the best experience I have ever had so far.
There we were, all 3 of us, from Africa- JICA sponsored. Every bit as lost and scared walking through the gates of Rikkyo University as vivid and real as the picture on internet. An amazingly beautiful place, so immaculate and organized. Hardly had we concluded pondering where to go than a heartful lady walked towards us asking if we needed help. Right on! Surprisingly, that is how systematic the university system itself is. Everything from orientation, registration, facilities and class is that organized and planned. No surprises at all, course outlines, expectations and lectures are delivered as advertised. Warm, helpful and accommodating staff all the way, surrounded by staff to help and guide you through. My campus environment and life has been so motivating. It flows right into class and helps me network and learn from both colleagues and the institution. My student life has never been better with an astounding library linked to internet systems that would have one access more than they could ever read, that is Rikkyo University, an academic world of excellence.
