A multicultural environment

Overall
The selling point about my university is that is one of a few universities which offer English course and the environment where you can meet people from more than 80 nationalities. Along with this uniqueness, all the knowledge is based on multidimensioned viewpoints. Teachers are really opened for discussion and motivating students to explore and try out new things as the motto "Shape your world" of my university.

Cons
Moderate academic support here.

Personal recommendation
It needs to find a focus. At present it is neither focused on the students nor on the faculty but seems to be focused on the administration. It needs to focus on its customers/students, improve the curriculum and the level of the instructors, support graduate students more and be far more open and conducive to change than it is.

Pros & Cons on APU
Kobayashi H
Japan, Undergraduate
Overall
When I first came to APU, I got a lot of support from the university. For example, I automatically got registered to a Jasso scholarship for 6 months so I can focus on learning and adjusting my life without worrying about money. But, as time goes by,  the support from the university was fading away. For example, when I want to complain to the university about the quality of the professor who teaches with horrible accents, or about the inconvenience of grade inquiry, etc. The staff from the academic office couldn't really help me at all. It seems like I got no place to convey my opinions. But overall, I would say that I give a so-so rank to this university since sometimes they can provide you with adequate support.
