Program Description:

Kyoto UniversityKyotoU

Kyoto University, Kyoto daigaku, or Kyodai, was established in 1897 as part of the Imperial University system in Japan, although its forerunner, the Chemistry School, was founded in 1869.  It is the second oldest university in Japan. Today the University is one of Asia's leading academic institutions and well known for its world-class researchers, including eight Nobel Prize laureates, two Fields medalists and one Gauss Prize.

The University has three campuses in Yoshida, Gokasho and Katsura, with Yoshida the main campus.  There are approximately 23,000 students enrolled across ten faculties and nineteen graduate schools.

Did you know...

For more than a thousand years Kyoto was the imperial capital of Japan. With temples, parks, bustling business districts, markets, from regal estates to tightly packed neighbourhoods, Kyoto is one of the oldest and most famous Asian metropolises. There was some consideration by the US of targeting Kyoto with an atomic bomb during WWII. As a result of being removed from the list, Kyoto is one of the few Japanese cities that still have an abundance of prewar buildings.
