Chuo University Pacific Office
As an extension of a partnership agreement with the University of Hawaii at Manoa, Chuo University opened its first overseas hub, located in the East West Center on the premises of UHM, in December 2013. Through the opening of this Office, interaction between students and academic staff of the two universities has grown rapidly. There are plans underway for new courses and projects in Hawaii over the coming years.
Chuo-Thammasat Collaboration Center
Chuo opened its second overseas hub in Thailand in December 2014, the Chuo-Thammasat Collaboration Center, located in Bangkok's Thammasat University. The Center plays a key role in Chuo's globalization initiatives across ASEAN, supporting student exchange, academic programs and research projects, building networks, and promoting communication activities internationally.
Chuo University Shanghai Office
The Chuo University Shanghai Office is Chuo's third overseas hub, opened in October 2016 at the University of Shanghai for Science and Technology (USST). The Shanghai Office gathers information on international exchange, prepares overseas study programs for students, provides research support for faculty members, and ensures a base for networking and public relations activities. Above all, the office enables Chuo to implement higher education programs in close cooperation with USST.
Chuo University Hanoi Office
The Chuo University Hanoi Office is Chuo’s fourth overseas hub, opened in September 2022. This office is expected to be a public relations locus for Chuo University in Vietnam, which sends many students to study in Japan. In addition, the Japanese International School (JIS), where the Hanoi Office is located, is Chuo’s first international partner school, integrating kindergarten through high school education, and modeled on the Japanese education system. We look forward to the day when students who have studied at JIS, and following their study at Chuo, will play an active role in connecting Japan and Vietnam.
