About the University
The University of Miyazaki (UOM) is a national university located in Miyazaki Prefecture in southern Kyushu. It is comprised of four faculties: Education and Culture, Medicine, Engineering, and Agriculture, and focuses academics on the fields of life sciences, environmental sciences, and energy sciences. Our university is the first in Japan to establish an Interdisciplinary Graduate School of Agriculture and Engineering (Doctoral Course) and Interdisciplinary Graduate School of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine (Doctoral Course). UOM is responding to globalization, and offers a Center for International Relations as a one-stop service center for international researchers and students. Miyazaki airport, not far from the UOM campus, offers nonstop flights to Incheon, Korea, and Taoyuan, Taiwan, making access to East Asia very convenient.
Programs / Services for International Students
With the dual goals of internationalizing research and education and promoting the intake of exceptional international students, UOM carries out the Summer Program (Japanese Language & Culture Class and Laboratory Research Class) every year between July and August.
The Japanese Language & Culture Class offers traditional cultural experiences and a weekend home stay etc. Through these experiences, students gain a better understanding of Japanese culture as well as opportunities to interact with Japanese students and members of the local community. The Laboratory Research Class assigns participating students to a lab in the fields of medicine, engineering, or agriculture based on the student’s specialty. The international students, within small groups of Japanese students, then attend classes and receive research guidance from the lab’s professor, all held entirely in English.
