Hiroshima University

University of World-wide Repute and Splendor for Years into the Future
Founded in 1949, Hiroshima University is a comprehensive research university with 12 undergraduate schools and 4 graduate schools. We are one of the 13 universities selected as a Top Global University (Top Type) by Japan’s Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT). From the ashes of the devastation caused by the atomic bomb, the university rose to fulfill a mission of peace. In the 2022 THE Impact Rankings, Hiroshima University was ranked among the top 100 in the world for five out of 17 SDG categories. The university offers an English-taught undergraduate program at the Department of Integrated Global Studies (IGS) in the School of Integrated Arts and Sciences. In August 2022, the “Global Initiative at Hiroshima University” opened in cooperation with Arizona State University/Thunderbird School of Global Management in the U.S. The initiative received the designation as a “foreign university in Japan” from MEXT — a first for a Japanese national university. Find out about studying at Hiroshima University where many international students from all over the world gather.

Student Interview

(School of Integrated Arts and Sciences, Department of Integrated Global Studies, 4th Grade)
Entrance Examination for International and Japanese Applicants Residing outside Japan

Born and raised in the UK by Japanese parents, I decided to enroll in Hiroshima University because I wanted to learn about Japanese culture and values, which would also contribute to my employment opportunities in Japan. The Department of Integrated Global Studies in the School of Integrated Arts and Sciences, which I decided to enter, offers English-instructed classes that combine humanities and sciences. In this department, students can acquire interdisciplinary knowledge that extends across other fields while maintaining English language skills, allowing them to find areas of study in which they are truly interested. Here I was able to find a wonderful environment where I could cultivate my ability to think from multiple perspectives with my peers from all over the world!
