TOKYO -- The campus of the Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology is about as cosmopolitan as it gets in Japan. More than half of the students at this graduate school hail from elsewhere, making it something of a shining light among the country's universities.

Of the total 819 students, 445 are not Japanese. There are 33 nationalities making up the international student body, with China, Vietnam, Thailand, and India topping the list. The school has 172 students from China, making them the largest foreign group.
