About Osaka University

Osaka University is focused on innovation, partnership with the local community and industry, and pioneering efforts in interdisciplinary research and education. Osaka University traces its beginnings to the Edo Period, to the foundation of Tekijuku, a private academy of Dutch studies in Osaka in 1838. Reaching further back, scientific and educational development in Osaka was enhanced by the establishment of a private educational institution named Kaitokudo in 1724 by five local merchants. These two educational institutions, founded not by Japanese feudal lords but by local citizens, are the source of inspiration and spiritual ancestry of the university. Both Tekijuku and Kaitokudo pursued scientific truth and knowledge while cultivating virtue and socio-cultural awareness in students. Osaka University is committed to contributing to society, based on the university’s motto “live locally, grow globally”.
