Kochi University aims to produce scholars with general knowledge of a wide range of fields along with extensive and practical ability in individually chosen major fields of study and able to contribute to the healthy development of local and international communities. As a national university within a local community, Kochi University contributes to the promotion of the local culture and industry. We also provide high quality educational activities and advanced research of a global standard. We constantly aim to strengthen the foundation of our research by improving facilities. We also aim to nurture personal, social and international awareness qualities that are indispensable for all in their careers. We promote studies in the humanities, social sciences, life and natural sciences as well as economics with a clear focus on practical effectiveness. 


Kochi Prefecture, facing the Pacific Ocean to the south and surrounded by the Shikoku Mountains to the north, nurtures freedom of thought and independence of the mind with its beautiful yet wild natural environment. The university is located an hour and a half by air from Tokyo and 40 minutes by air from Osaka (or five hours by train), providing a tranquil location to study.
