Kumamoto University is one of the oldest institutions of higher education in Japan, and has been at the forefront of advancing science and technology and contributing to the development of the Japanese Educational system for over 100 years.
Recently, we have been selected by the Government as one of the 22 Research Universities (RU22) in Japan and as one of the 37 Top Global University Projects. Also, the Center of Community (COC) project was awarded. Consequently, Kumamoto University is seeing increased internationalization brought about by international academic and student exchange programs, global-collaboration research programs with the world’s leading researchers at the Global Centers of Excellence, and other such international activities.
Kumamoto University conducts short-term international student exchange programs (including a Japanese course), and also offers Summer and Spring Programs for students who are interested in experiencing Japanese life and culture. Through these activities, Kumamoto University continues to contribute to local communities and to global society.
