Admission

To prospective students of Kansai University of International Studies

Kansai University of International Studies is a new university, which opened in 1998 with the aim of fostering “truly international individuals” who are able to take on the challenges of the 21st century. In keeping with the university name, which contains the word “international”, through our educational philosophies, we have concentrated our efforts on nurturing individuals who can transcend borders and succeed on the global stage.

In recent years, amid rapid social change, the economics field has seen progressive transformations on a global scale. As society becomes more international, there is a great need for individuals with a global outlook, who are not confined by borders or specific economic areas, and who can play an active role in the world. As a university which takes on the challenges of the 21st century, Kansai University of International Studies aims to create a new form of university education, based on the educational philosophy of “nurturing creative and active human resources who can oversee the world from a global point of view.”

The university has three faculties - the Faculty of Human Sciences, the Faculty of Education, and the Faculty of Health Sciences. We have around 2,000 students, who devote themselves to their studies daily, with the aim of contributing to society in the 21st century. Over 100 students from Asian countries study alongside their Japanese counterparts on our campuses. We sincerely hope that the international students who enroll in our university contribute to international exchange, while acquiring specialist knowledge in the fields of education and research.
