Kyushu University was founded in 1911 and has grown to be one of the most prestigious universities in Japan. At present, there are 12 undergraduate schools, 18 graduate schools, 4 research institutes, and a hospital.

Approximately 19,000 students, 2,100 faculty members and 2,300 administrative staffs are engaged in study and/or research at the University. Kyushu University is located in Fukuoka, gateway of Kyushu.

Geographically and historically, the city is close to other parts of Asia, so we have been aiming to be the “University opened to Asia” from the beginning. Also, a new main campus, in Ito opened in 2005, where some departments have begun its activities.
