Cultivating Creative, Compassionate and Capable World Citizens

Located in the city of Nishinomiya, near Osaka and Kyoto, Kwansei Gakuin University has a rich international tradition that dates back to its founding by Walter R. Lambuth, an American missionary, in 1889. The university aims to develop students into global leaders with initiatives such as KGU's partnership agreement with United Nations Volunteers, the first of its kind in Asia.

KGU has 11 undergraduate humanities and science departments, several of which offer programs where English is the medium of instruction, including the Asian Studies course at the School of International Studies and the International Management MBA course at the School of Business Administration. In addition, KGU has 14 graduate courses, some of which are offered in English, such as the International Masters Program at the Graduate School of Science and Technology, one of Japan's top research centers.

The university is famous in Japan for its clubs and athletics — the glee club is the oldest boys' choir in Japan and the Kwansei Gakuin Fighters is the most successful team in Japanese college football history with 30 national championships.
