Kobe has developed into an international port, through extensive trade and intercultural exchanges with Asian countries. To foster Kobe’s global spirit, the Center for International Education was established in April 2016, with the aim of providing global education to both Japanese and international students. The center consists of two sections, the International Student Section (formerly International Student Center) and the Program Coordination Section, which deals with special programs to send domestic students abroad.
On our campus, we have approximately 1200 international students from around 80 countries. They are an invaluable resource for providing dynamic bi-directional education for both international and domestic students. We will strive to create programs to develop students who are truly global citizens, able to go out into the world from Kobe University.
