Quite good, but not always  for foreign students

Overall
I think it would be helpful to make some points for foreign students who want to study in the university, or Japanese universities in general. Tsukuba is supposed to be one of the best universities in Japan, but it doesn't seem to really show for foreign students unless they are actually capable of communicating in japanese. Most of foreign students who can't speak japanese fluently tend to attend only courses made for english speakers, which doesn't quite effectively give them special academic experiences(because of the less number of courses itself, and there's not so many professors who can actually speak and teach in english in proper ways). Altough the university itself provides quite good intellectual environment, in my opinion, I don't recommend this university to every students who just want to study in Japan.

Personal recommendation
Mainly to revamp the living quarters for the students. I was happy with the school and its layout. The living quarters were unexcusable though.

Course recommendations
The only reason I studied abroad, academically speaking, was to polish up my language. Therefore Japanese language is the only coursed I took. The setup is pretty straight foreward. You take a placement exam and are put into your corresponding level class. If you are uncomfortable with the class you are in you can request to be put up or down a level.

Personal recommendation
If you come here to experience Japan, come. If it is for academic reasons, don't. Tsukuba is supposed to be one of the best universities in Japan, but it doesn't really show (at least at the graduate level).
