There are three International Houses in our university; in Shugakuin, Uji, and Ohbaku.

 

KYOTO UNIVERSITY INTERNATIONAL

SYMPOSIUM

  The "Kyoto University International Symposium" has been held since 2001 in the United States, England, Canada, Singapore, China, Thailand and Indonesia on the subjects of information science, economics, energy science, psychology, life science, and plant science. It aims to expand the two-way flow of research information through exchanges of prestigious scholars, and to offer an occasion for participants to gain valuable experience in various academic fields.

LIAISON STATION

In December 2002, the Shanghai Research Center was founded at the Graduate School of Economics, and the following year, in January 2003, a branch office was established at Fudan University, China. The center's main focus is research on present-day China and its relation to East Asian economies. There is a faculty exchange program between Kyoto University and Fudan University, and an educational program to train top-level specialists in fields relating to the economy of East Asia is underway. For example, lectures are given in analyzing the economies and management systems of China and Japan. In October 2005, Kyoto University's Graduate School of Engineering launched an endowed project of the Japan-China Cooperative Research Laboratory on Environmental Technology. This joint project conducted in conjunction with Tsinghua University will be based at the Cooperative Research and Education Center for Environmental Technology of Kyoto University & Tsinghua University, which is located on the campus of Tsinghua University. We expect this program to become a locus of joint research and education between Japan and China in the field of environmental technology as well as a focal point for industry-academia partnerships.

The cutting-edge research undertaken at Kyoto University is highly respected both internationally and domestically, and correspondingly expectations are high for current projects such as the university's MEXT COE Program projects. Almost half of Kyoto University's 23 COE initiatives have established overseas research stations. Additionally, the Research Institute for Sustainable Humanosphere and the Center for Ecological Research have set up observatories and field stations in Malaysia and Indonesia to engage in research surveys. In the near future, these overseas stations (currently 32 in total) will form a network which will function as local admissions offices in addition to conducting research.

In 2007, the proposal for Kyoto University's Institute for Integrated Cell-Material Sciences was adopted for inclusion in MEXT's World Premier International Research Center (WPI) Initiative, an initiative providing priority support for projects aimed at creating world-class research centers.

 

Note:

*MEXT:  the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology

**The Center of Excellence (COE) Program aims to elevate the standards of education and research at Japanese universities. Its priority is the formation of world-class research and education centers based on the principle of excellence as judged by third-party evaluators. In 2002 MEXT began implementing the 21st Century COE programs to assist Japanese universities in competing internationally at the world's highest standards.  Based on an assessment of the 21st Century COE Program, and with the intention of continuing its fundamental principles, MEXT established the Global COE Program in 2007.  Kyoto University currently has 12 programs which have been adopted as Global COE Programs.

 

 

  INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

  Kyoto University was founded in 1897.  Throughout its history, the university has been dedicated to furthering higher education and fostering free academic exchange.   Approximately 3,000 faculty members serve the academic and research needs of more than 22,000 students.  Graduates of the university include Nobel Laureates, leading scientists, prize-winning authors, and many more valued scholars. International students come to Kyoto University from more than 90 countries overseas.

  Kyoto University launched this international program in 1997 at its centennial anniversary.

  KUINEP is designed for undergraduate students whose institutions have a student exchange agreement with Kyoto University.  All KUINEP lectures are offered in English and they cover a wide range of subjects from the humanities to the natural sciences.  Students may enroll in them as a "Special Auditor" in Kyoto University.  Lectures for the fall semester begin in October and end in February of the following year, and lectures for the spring semester will follow from April to July.  KUINEP students receive a KUINEP Completion Certificate when they finish the program.  Students' grades are reported to their home institutions at the end of every semester.

 

(2) Kyoto University General Exchange Program

a. Special Auditor

Those who are enrolled either at undergraduate or graduate level of their home institutions and who are proficient in Japanese may be admitted by this category. Students can enroll in regular classes with Kyoto University regular students, which are offered in Japanese by each undergraduate faculty/graduate school.  The academic calendar is the same as that of KUINEP and students' grades are reported to their home institutions at the end of every semester.

 

b. Special Research Student

Those who are enrolled in graduate schools at their home institutions can deepen their own research under the instruction of an academic advisor at Kyoto University without taking any courses lectured in classrooms: with the condition that a suitable academic advisor for their research is available at Kyoto University.  Japanese proficiency is not required only if the academic advisor can guide the student by any language other than Japanese.

 

Application and Selection

  Exchange application packages are sent from Kyoto University to international offices of its partner universities in January every year.  Prospective students should submit application documents through the international office of their home institution to Kyoto University.  Direct application from students to Kyoto University will not be accepted.

 Each exchange student will be assigned to one of nine undergraduate faculties or fourteen graduate schools (no medical students are accepted) of Kyoto University according to the student's area of interest.

 

 

 VISA INFORMATION

 

  In order to enter Japan to study at Kyoto University, an international student needs a college student visa [ryugaku visa].
