Temple University also operates Temple University Japan (テンプル大学ジャパン Tenpuru Daigaku Japan?), a branch campus located in two buildings in Minato, Tokyo, Japan. University Japan Campus (Abbreviated TUJ, Japanese テンプル大学ジャパンキャンパス) is an international campus of Temple University in Philadelphia is one of the 23 special wards of Tokyo, Japan. As of March 1 2008, it had an official Population of 217335 and a officially, is one of the 47 prefectures of Japan and located on the eastern side of the main island Honshū. For a topic outline on this subject see List of basic Japan topics. TUJ is the oldest and largest campus of any foreign university in Japan, with 2,830 students, about one-half of whom are Japanese and the others being from the U. S. and about 40 other countries. The campus offers B. A. (nine majors), M. S. Ed. , Ed. D. , MBA and LL. M programs, and also offers semester and year-long study abroad programs for U. S. undergraduates and law students (the latter is the first American Bar Association-accredited study abroad program in Asia). The American Bar Association ( ABA) founded August 21 1878 is a voluntary Bar association of Lawyers and law students which is not specific In addition, TUJ has non-degree English-language, continuing (adult) education, and corporate education programs.
After extended negotiations involving the U. S. and Japanese governments, in February 2005 TUJ became the first recognized foreign university campus (外国大学日本校 gaikoku daigaku nihonkō?) in Japan. As a result, its credits and degrees are recognized as being equivalent to those of Japanese universities (while still being regular Temple University credits and degrees) and it can sponsor visas for international students. TUJ students are also given Japanese student identification cards and can obtain student discounts on train passes, mobile phone contracts, and other items.
The one remaining issue of contention between TUJ and the Japanese government is that TUJ is taxed as a for-profit company, even though the main campus is a non-profit, state university. This puts a significant financial burden on TUJ and its students.
TUJ plans to move to a large, purpose-built facility -- Temple Educational Center -- in central Tokyo in 2010.
