Kagoshima University has a long history and rich tradition in education, and the university’s origins can be traced back to the Hangaku Zoshikan School, which was established in 1773 and was run by the feudal domain. After the merger of several higher education institutions including the Seventh Higher School established during the Meiji period, Kagoshima University inherited this educational tradition and was newly established in 1949 as a national university. The university has developed into one of the leading comprehensive universities comprising 9 faculties, 10 graduate schools and 18 education and research institutes with approximately 9,000 undergraduates and 1,600 graduate students including 300 international students.
