We are located in the heart of Japan, in Osaka of the Kansai area, where our history has shown that the tradition of creative and innovative ideas has long existed. Our university has carried on this tradition - in 2005, three universities, Osaka Prefecture University, Osaka Women's University and Osaka Prefectural College of Nursing, have been merged as one great engine for Osaka and we have restarted our endeavors into newer and greater academic pursuits.
With around 8,000 students and 900 faculty and staff members, our campuses make an ideal academic setting for new students to gain essential knowledge while exploring new frontiers. Collaborative work among the various departments and schools are encouraged. You will be able to expand your knowledge and studies into new interdisciplinary challenges.
We are open to students, faculty and alumni of all countries as well as to the community. We hope to be a gateway to the world where the fresh and inspirational breezes of academic learning and interaction flow freely in and out to the outside world.
