Overview

Kagoshima University (KU) 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, KU inherited this educational tradition and was newly established in 1949 as a national university. 

KU has developed into one of the leading comprehensive universities comprising 9 faculties and 10 graduate schools with approximately 9,000 undergraduates and 1,600 graduate students. KU has partnerships with 135 institutions in 32 countries and regions, and has approximately 300 international students.

KU aims to contribute to the development of the society and the community with a spirit of self-sufficiency and enterprise, based on the geographical characteristics of Kagoshima as a part of the Asia-Pacific and according to the principles of academic freedom and diversity. KU endeavors to produce graduates possessing high moral principles and a social nature and individuals who aspire to overcome challenges and work actively for the global society.

KU also strives to engage in cutting-edge research pursuits in infection control, biological diversity, experimental animal models, the Milky Way Galaxy, and intractable cancer in order to promote our goals for innovation. Additionally, KU may provide solutions to local issues regarding the islands, environment, food & health, water, and energy. As “the center of intelligence” in the community, KU also promotes the development of quality lifelong learning, cultivation of human resources, joint research projects with the local community, and industry-university-government collaboration.

KU aims to significantly increase our presence all over the world through our various activities and contribute to society both locally and internationally.
