Academic Calendar

During their enrollment at the University of Art and Design, Tokyo, students have the opportunity to present their works (in progress) in various occasions such as the school festival (CS Festival), the ZOKEI Festival where they are to present their thesis works and projects, and the Tokyo Gobidai University Union Graduation Exhibition.
For students pursuing art and design, participating in these occasions are extremely meaningful. We hold these events as significant elements of our educational activities.
