Atsushi Hamana,
PhD President

Kansai University of International Studies (KUIS) was established in 1998 with the aim of fostering “truly international individuals” able to assume an effective role in the 21st century. As expressed by the word “International” in the name, nurturing people who can actively participate on the global stage has long been the focus of our university in the form of our educational philosophies.
In recent years, amidst rapid change in society, innovative modifications have also been promoted in the economic sphere. While our environment has become ever more international, there is a pressing need for individuals possessed of a global perspective unconfined by typical boundaries or specific economic regions to play a more active role. Our ambition is to be a place of inspired learning, cultivating compassionate and highly creative students with the ability to act from a global perspective under our educational philosophy as a university with a key role in the 21st century.
KUIS is underpinned by its three faculties, namely the Faculty of Human Sciences, Faculty of Education, and Faculty of Health Sciences. About 1,900 students work hard to contribute to society in the 21st century. About 100 overseas students from Asia and further afield are enrolled on campus, and they study together with our Japanese students.
With the university as its parent organization, the KUIS Japanese Language Course will start in October 2014 as a course for foreign students seeking to attend a university or graduate school in Japan to master the Japanese language skills required for such studies.
We expect all foreign students admitted to the KUIS Japanese Language Course to master Japanese, and to benefit from higher education at the university to earn a degree with specialist knowledge in each educational and research area, as well as contribute to international exchange.
