The University of Tsukuba effectively combines courses in general education and those related to the student's major into a multidisciplinary format, instead of first providing a general education course, followed by a field-specific education course, as seen in many universities in Japan.

Students can start studying for their major field of study from the first year, while acquiring knowledge in a wide range of other academic fields where necessary, or according to personal interests. The student can plan the four years at the University of Tsukuba according to their own needs and interests, and discover the depth and fascination of learning that is different from what they experienced in their high school education.
