Founded as one of Japan’s seven imperial universities, Kyushu University has a proud tradition dating back to 1911. Over the decades it has produced layers of talented scholars, public officials, engineers, lawyers, medical practitioners, etc., who contributed immeasurably to the modernization of Japan and the creation of knowledge for the benefit of humankind. A member of the exclusive RU11, Kyushu University is also one of the foremost research universities in Japan. We are particularly well-respected today for our world-class research in hydrogen energy, and our medical school is by any standards top-notch. From an early phase in its hundred year history, Kyushu University had made itself famous for its unwavering commitment to internationalization. In addition to running over 60 English-taught degree programs, we have, among other things, continuously strengthened our support apparatus for our international population, and initiated projects with global partners. At Kyushu there are now close to 19,000 students (of which over 10% are from outside Japan) taking a wide range of course offered by well over 2,000 academic staff.
