Founded in 1897, Kyoto University is the second-oldest university in Japan. The 15th best university in Asia according to the QS Asian University Rankings, Kyoto has produced at least nine Nobel Prize laureates, including physicist Makoto Kobayashi. About 22,000 students are enrolled at the university across its undergraduate and postgraduate programs, and they are based across three campuses: Yoshida, Uji and Katsura. Of these, Uji is home to research centers and laboratories related to natural sciences, while Katsura was conceived as a “techno-science hill”. Yoshida is the largest campus and is divided into seven different sub-campuses.
