Overview

Nagoya University is a Japanese national university well recognized for its cutting-edge research in the fields of physics and chemistry. It has largely contributed to the national and international scientific community, with many world-class scientific research achievements led by scientists and research teams from the university. These include the PMNS matrix, Sakata model, Noyori asymmetric hydrogenation, Okazaki fragment, and Blue LED, all of which have pushed the boundaries of theoretical and applied sciences.

The university is currently organized into nine schools: education, letters, law, medicine, economics, science, agricultural science, engineering, and informatics and sciences. It serves more than 15,500 domestic and foreign students, with Japanese being the official language of instruction. However, it also offers a number of graduate and undergraduate degree programs that are taught entirely in English, some of which include economics, business administration, medical science, chemistry, and automotive engineering.

Moreover, the university was named one of the top Designated National University Corporation and the largest national higher education institution in Japan. Nagoya University, through research and education, spearheads scientific groundwork that contributes to the development of culture, human welfare, and global industry. By studying society, humanities, and nature from an inclusive viewpoint, the university promotes an education system that develops and inherits intellectual resources.

Nagoya University also manages a number of research centers and institutes. These include the Institute of Innovation for Future Society, the Institute of Transformative Bio-Molecules, and the Kobayashi-Maskawa Institute for the Origin of Particles and the Universe. Considered as one of the top research institutions in Japan, the university offers world-class research standards in subject areas such as biochemistry, physics, and biology.

Consistently ranking as a top higher education institution in Japan, Nagoya University attracts students from all over the world and owns a number of satellite campuses in other countries, including Mongolia, Cambodia, and Vietnam. Roughly ten percent of the student population are international students, most of whom are taking up residence in several dormitories situated around the campus.

The university, being an internationally recognized institution, also promotes international academic cooperation by contributing to cultural and educational exchanges between countries from different parts of the world, especially those in Asia. It conducts multifaceted research activities that address global problems and contributes to the development of the region. By supporting advanced and innovative education, Nagoya University also aspires to be an open and accessible national research institution.
