Hiroshima University

University of World-wide Repute and Splendor for Years into the Future
Founded in 1949, Hiroshima University (HU) is a comprehensive research university with 12 undergraduate schools, four graduate schools, and one research institute. From the ashes of the devastation caused by the atomic bomb, the university rose to fulfill a mission of peace. In the 2023 THE Impact Rankings, HU was ranked among the top 100 in the world for six out of 17 SDG categories. The Department of Integrated Global Studies (IGS) in the School of Integrated Arts and Sciences offers a unique undergraduate program taught entirely in English, covering both liberal arts and sciences. HU also hosts more than 1,900 international students from 94 countries and regions, with different scholarship opportunities available. In 2022, the “Global Initiative at Hiroshima University” opened in cooperation with the Arizona State University/Thunderbird School of Global Management in the U.S. The initiative received the designation as a “foreign university in Japan” from the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) — a first for a Japanese national university.

Student Interview

Mr. Noriki Kumauchi
School of Integrated Arts and Sciences, Department of Integrated Global Studies (IGS), 3rd year
Entered by On Campus Entrance Interview Examination for International and Japanese Applicants

In the Department of IGS at Hiroshima University, I can study a wide range of fields spanning from liberal arts to science. Though my interests are in biology, I can also take classes specifically made for liberal arts majors which interest me, fulfilling my educational wants and needs.
The professors are very hardworking and dedicated to their craft, making for an outstanding learning environment. Throughout being in IGS, I have come to realize that having a balance between studying, socializing, and work is extremely important. Since coming here, I have been able to connect with likeminded people, allowing me to expand my national and international connections with fellow students and even very dedicated professors.
