Osaka University

History

 Osaka University was founded in 1931 as the sixth imperial university of Japan through strong demand from the business and government sectors of Osaka, as well as the people of Osaka City and Prefecture. The roots of Osaka University can be found in Kaitokudo and Tekijuku of the Edo period.

Education

The academic culture and spirit of these two places of scholarship are inherited even today, and the spirit of innovation and a restless spirit of challenge serve as the cornerstone for our endeavors in education and research. And after a huge undertaking merging Osaka University with Osaka University of Foreign Studies in 2007, the university has shown that it will continue to develop as one of Japan’s leading comprehensive research universities.

Research

Osaka University will further promote the globalization of research, the development of young researchers and increase diversity, a source of development of scholarship, by employing more female faculty and international faculty members.

Furthermore, under the leadership of the president, the university will create a research environment where researchers from all over the world will gather and further improve the university's excellence in research.

All rooms are Western-style and, in order to provide students with some privacy, single rooms. Rooms are furnished with a bookcase (only in Toneyama, Seimei, and Niina), a bed, a locker or closet. 

Joint-use facilities include bathrooms, rest rooms, laundry rooms, and kitchens. Boarding students have a cleaning rota for these facilities. There are no restaurants in dormitories, but residents can cook in public kitchens. Internet access is available throughout the dormitories. The internet service fee is charged. 

Osaka University is officially accredited by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, Japan.

Student Reviews

Highly recommended if you want to experience Japanese culture while pursuing you research/studies!
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

This university provided enough support for students in terms of learning experience and general welfare such as finance and mental health. There are a lot of management issues if you are trying to enter the country, but once you enter and start your research, you will enjoy it!

A Little Story About ISP in Osaka Univeristy
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

I am very impressed to follow this program even though it is online and the time is quite short. The professor explained well and we were allowed to ask questions. The opening ceremony was also interesting because so far I have never seen Osaka University firsthand. I aspire to study masters there.
