Founded in Fukuoka in 1911 as the 4th Imperial University, Kyushu University has established itself as a leader in education and research not just in Japan, but throughout the world. Currently, it has a total student population of 18,799, of which about 10% are international students, and its faculty boasts roughly 2,300 full-time members.
Our university has grown into a prestigious international institution; it now comprises 11 undergraduate schools, 18 graduate schools, 16 faculties, 5 research institutes, a university hospital offering advanced medical care, and libraries that stock more than 4 million books
Kyushu University's strength as a key university is that researchers conduct creative, basic academic studies in a wide range of fields on the basis of their intellectual curiosity. A broad foundation for academic research enriches cultural and social life, becomes the motivational force for innovation, and has allowed us to boldly face up to once unimaginable global environmental issues, to our current resource and energy problems, and to the pathology and treatment of incurable diseases, which has led to many great achievements. Focusing once more on these fundamental values of academic research, we will strengthen the support system to further develop it.
In academic research, we will become the driving force for contact between different fields in order to develop new frontiers. We aim both to promote highly specialized academic fields as well as to integrate and fuse these academic fields into a greater whole.
Kyushu University is seeking to develop and improve a support system for international students and researchers in order to assist their daily lives and academic activities in Japan.
We assist new incoming international students and researchers with the following.Duties contents
The dormitories at the Ito Campus are international dormitories where students from several different countries live together. A diverse mixture of students, from freshman to graduate school students (both master's and doctoral course candidates), live together in these dormitories. Distinguishing them from other college dormitories that feature strict rules and hierarchies, here at the Ito Campus dormitories, we respect your private life and take measures into consideration that allow you to build human relationships and interact with other diverse students. For that reason, we assign students who have experience living in the dormitories as dormitory leaders, so they become the nucleus of student interaction.
Every April regular medical checkups for all students are conduct. If any problems are discovered, in addition to implementing retests (re-measurements) or detailed examinations, treatment or consultations by specialists will be recommended if necessary.
We are still in the process of relocating to Ito Campus, our new main campus. This state-of-the-art campus is designed to conduct verification experiments for various cutting-edge technologies, reflecting our high regard for the conservation of biodiversity and the preservation of historical remains as well. Kyushu University continues to dynamically evolve to make further leaps in the next 100 years. I sincerely hope that more researchers and students from around the world will join us in our endeavor to create new traditions for the next centennial together.
Each campus has facilities available for extracurricular athletic activities. Sporting equipment and mountain climbing gear are also loaned out at the information desks.
