Kindai University

Kindai University is now one of western Japan’s largest universities, comprising 13 faculties with 48 departments, 11 graduate schools, a graduate law school, 20 research facilities, two junior colleges, 18 associated primary and secondary schools, and three teaching hospitals. Committed to meeting the needs of today’s rapidly changing society, the university aims to continue expanding its educational programs and facilities.

Kindai University’s founding principles are ‘learning for the real world’ and ‘nurturing intellectual and emotional intelligence’, and we are committed to our educational goal of developing students into individuals who are caring, trustworthy, and respectable. We firmly believe that our founding principles and educational goal will be all the more important in the 21st century as Japan continues to develop further into a knowledge-based society.

As a full-range academic institution with different faculties and strengths, we are trying to achieve the union of practical education and the nurturing of intellectual and emotional intelligence. Practical education in its true sense does not necessarily seek simple practicability; it also requires us to understand the meaning of the events unfolding around us.  We believe that such people are self-motivated and can spur themselves on to contribute to society throughout their lifetime. Our mission in today’s world is to send such individuals into society.
