University of Tokyo

The University of Tokyo is globally renowned as one of Japan’s most prestigious university and is the highest ranked higher education institute of Japan on all global league tables.

The collaborative agreement which was signed in 2015, has enabled us to carry out exchange of academic staff and researchers as well as students. In the consultation process which preceded the signing of the agreement, the initial project to implement was agreed to be an exchange programme of students in the area of archaeology and heritage studies, which are disciplines at the core of the research interests of the Sainsbury Institute.

Since 2015, three Summer Programme in Japan and three Winter Programme in the UK to explore archaeology and heritage in both countries have been carried out with University of Tokyo’s Faculty of Letters.
