About Osaka City University

Osaka City University (OCU), the first municipal university to be established in Japan, celebrated its 135th anniversary in 2015. Today, it is the largest public university in the country as well as the only comprehensive university within the city of Osaka. OCU comprises eight faculties and 10 graduate schools (Business, Economics, Law, Literature and Human Sciences, Science, Engineering, Medicine, Nursing, Human Life Science and Creative Cities). In all of its faculties, emphasis is placed on small-group tutorials and seminars, so teaching staff are easily approachable and students can freely ask their questions. Free discussion is an important aspect in our education. As an urban-based university, OCU has a special interest in the study and research of issues that cities in general are facing. This covers a wide area of subjects including environmental technology, health and economy. Three of OCU’s leading interdisciplinary research areas are in next-generation energy, health science and disaster prevention. OCU is proud of its research reputation, which is reflected in the number of research projects granted by the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology.
