Cultivating Creative, Compassionate and Capable World Citizens

Located in 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 the United Nations Volunteers, the first of its kind in Asia.

KGU has 14 undergraduate schools, 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 schools, with certain programs that 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 Kobe-Sanda Campus (KSC) underwent a reorganization in 2021 which expanded its slate of schools from two to five. As the home of the science schools at KGU, as well as the School of Policy Studies, the KSC is focused on the concept of "borderless innovation," with multidisciplinary education systems that cut across different fields of expertise, entrepreneur education programs for students to start real-world businesses, sustainable energy research initiatives, and expansive international programs in collaboration with partner universities overseass.
