Nurturing solid language skills alongside poise and strength in negotiation

The educational goal of Kyorin University is to nurture internationally-minded students with the spirit and drive to serve society and to develop highly capable human resources for international cooperation. The university has 4 faculties in fields of science and humanities and 3 graduate schools, with a vocational school for nursing attached to the School of Medicine. Each faculty and department features its own special areas of study and research while maintaining close cross-organizational cooperation that extends beyond their respective specializations. Classes and research are conducted in small units, with close attention given to each student. In 2012, Kyorin University was selected for the Global Human Resources Development Promotion Project sponsored by the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT), and since then, continuous efforts have been made to further the internationalization of our campus.

Campus relocation from Hachioji city to Mitaka city in 2016

A new campus “Inokashira Campus” is scheduled to open in the Shimorenjaku area of Mitaka city, which is only about 12 minutes by bus from both Mitaka and Kichijoji stations.
