Fostering Global Human Resources
In response to the growing demand for human resources with an international perspective, a trend sparked by globalization, Kansai University is in the process of internationalizing its academic programs through its newly founded Division of International Affairs, and a new initiative launched in April 2014 called the KUGF Program to expedite its efforts to build a global campus.
International Research and Cooperation
Kansai University operates three programs aimed at facilitating international exchange among researchers—the Exchange Scholars Program, the Visiting Scholars Program, and the Scholars from Overseas Program, the last of which allows participants to work at overseas institutions. It also has five overseas offices, and is actively publicizing its academic and research programs as well as its international assistance, volunteer, and cooperation activities.
Study Abroad Programs for Outgoing Students
Kansai University offers a wide variety of study abroad opportunities, including long-term programs that allow students to earn credit hours at the host institution, and short-term language seminars held during the spring and summer breaks.
Study Opportunities for Incoming International Students
Kansai University offers a broad range of learning opportunities to students from outside Japan, including degree-credit courses, exchange programs available to students of partner institutions, and international research student programs.
