Step 1: Understand PEAK


PEAK welcomes students from all over the world to study, in English, on one of two undergraduate programs:
The International Program on Japan in East Asia
The International Program on Environmental Sciences

PEAK, meaning Programs in English at Komaba, is part of the University of Tokyo. The University of Tokyo (UTokyo) is ranked 28th in QS World University Rankings 2024. Our programs offer a unique, innovative and international four-year undergraduate degree experience. As one of the world's leading universities, we admit a select group of globally-oriented students and offer them exciting possibilities for intellectual growth and personal development.

The aim of these undergraduate degree programs is to share rich intellectual resourses and ethos of UTokyo with the wider world and international community of students and scholars. JEA and ES classes are small and interactive in order to facilliate the exchange of ideas and foster creative thinking. In addition, students have the opportunitiy to study Japanese lagnuage during their time at UTokyo.

Please visit the "Courses" section of the website for details of the contents of the programs.

In addition, since PEAK is a part of the University of Tokyo, PEAK students can access variety of resources that the university offers. For details about the University of Tokyo, please check the following page:
