About Nagoya University

Nagoya University (NU) was first founded in 1871 as a temporary hospital and medical school. After undergoing several transitions, NU was established as an imperial university in 1939, and it has grown to be one of the world’s top research universities. Throughout its history, NU has maintained a free and vibrant academic culture. Conducting research and education on all aspects of human beings, society, and nature, the University pursues its goal of contributing to the well-being and happiness of humankind. Nagoya University fundamental objective is to cultivate leaders with genuine courage and intellect. We call such leaders “Yuuki-aru Chishiki-jin”, that is individuals who are able to harness their courage, curiosity, and creativity to fully, yet responsibly, exploit their freedom with their educational and research endeavors. Its multi-disciplinary curriculum is designed to cultivate ethical leaders who are able to develop innovative solutions, through inquiry and analysis, with strong communication and teamwork skills to be productive members of the global environment. Nagoya University welcomes highly motivated students who share this vision to apply to our programs.

Message from President

Seiichi Matsuo, D. Med.President of Nagoya University

Seiichi Matsuo,
D. Med. President of Nagoya University

Welcome to Nagoya University where you can find our faculty and students discussing the world biggest problems and experimenting in a variety of ways to solve them. Nagoya University Academic Charter identifies our fundamental objectives. First of all, like any large comprehensive university, we support the highest levels of research by our faculty and students. Two of our colleagues, Professor Amano and Professor Emeritus Akasaki, accepted the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2014 for their research on the Blue Light-Emitting-Diode. Secondly, we seek to provide all those students that pass through our doors with a top-class education through our small class-sizes and an emphasis on practical training in research skills. Thirdly, Nagoya University seeks not only to pursue knowledge for its own sake but also recognizes this as part of its duty to improve society. Witness the Blue LED, an invention developed on our campus, and which is now used by millions of people in smartphones, television screens, and more energy-efficient lightbulbs. Finally, Nagoya University is also deeply committed to the process known loosely by the term “Internationalization”. More of our Japanese students are studying abroad and we are accepting more international students from a wider range of countries. You can also see that we have greatly expanded the available English-taught courses. I hope that you will join us as we seek to make Nagoya University a place where all who come can develop into what we have traditionally called “Courageous intellectuals” people who are uninhibited by internal or external forces as they pursue the goals of research, education, and contributing to society.

English-Taught Programs

Because of its internationally-recognized achievements and established academic standing, Nagoya University is among the few universities selected by the Japanese government to offer international programs designed for international students. The objectives of these programs are to strengthen the international competitiveness of Japanese higher education and to offer a first-rate educational opportunity to high-achieving students worldwide.

Since 2011, Nagoya University’s flagship departments started offerring the "G30 International Programs " which are full-degree programs taught entirely in English. Through a multi disciplinary general education curriculum, these programs aim to cultivate ethical leaders who are able to develop innovative solutions through inquiry and analysis, with strong communication skills to be productive members of our global society.
To check the programs we offer, please go to Undergraduate page and Graduate page.
                
The unique concept of “Courageous intellectuals” stresses audacity, curiosity and creativity. “Courageous intellectuals” at NU are trained to responsibly dedicate themselves and exploit their academic freedom through their educational and research endeavors. In addition to their major, international students also take Japanese language classes to expand their career opportunities.
