It has been four years since Osaka Prefecture University, Osaka Women's University and Osaka Prefecture College of Nursing integrated into one university, incorporated and reemerged as the Osaka Prefecture University, a Public University Corporation. The new university comprises seven schools, each with its own graduate school: Engineering, Life and Environmental Sciences, Science, Economics, Humanities and Social Sciences, Nursing, and Comprehensive Rehabilitation. We are among a select group of public universities to offer this many undergraduate and graduate schools. Our fully-fledged university has established the highest standard in both research and education. With approximately 6,500 undergraduates and 1,500 graduate students, our school boasts an enrollment of over 8,000 students, all actively participating in academics, research and extracurricular activities.
