What is the International College?

The International College was established in August 2010 to oversee degree programs taught in English at Osaka University as part of the Project for Establishing Core Universities for Internationalization, more commonly referred to as the Global 30 program.

The International College aims to improve the competitiveness of Osaka University by providing an environment that makes it easier for international students to study in Japan and receive a high quality education and, thereby, nurture personnel who can play an active role in the competitive global arena.
