International Undergraduate Program in Science (IUPS), to foster advanced expertise in science and understanding of Japanese language and culture
Osaka University, founded in 1931, is one of the largest national universities in Japan with approximately 7,000 faculty members and 23,000 students (including 2,600 international students). Osaka University conducts world-class research under the objective of “Live Locally, Grow Globally,” and its mission is to nurture outstanding individuals who possess a high sense of ethics and wish to become global citizens and leaders in a variety of fields worldwide.
The School of Science offers the International Undergraduate Program in Science (IUPS), which accepts students in the Departments of Mathematics, Physics, and Chemistry. The most distinctive feature of this program is the transition, during the second year, from attending major classes in English to attending major classes in Japanese, so that, in the later years of the program, Japanese and international students study and conduct cutting-edge scientific research together in an international environment.
