Dean Miki NAKAO, Prof. Dr.

Welcome to the Undergraduate, Masters and PhD programs taught in English at the School of Agriculture and Graduate School of Bioresource and Bioenvironmental Sciences, Kyushu University. Our programs, which are open to international students, focus on research and education related to maintaining a stable and sustainable supply of the food and natural materials indispensable for life, the conservation of wildlife and the environment, and the health and welfare of mankind.

Kyushu University is one of the top universities in Japan, as well as being one of the oldest, with the 100th anniversary of the School of Agriculture in 2019. An important part of our history has been welcoming international students to study here. We offer a range of scholarships and have dedicated English speaking staff to ensure that international students have all the help and support they require for their studies in Japan. In the undergraduate program taught in English, international and Japanese students study together, whilst research projects for undergraduate and postgraduate courses are conducted in research laboratories alongside Japanese students. One of the strengths of our program is the diverse range of research topics conducted within the school including biological, chemical, physical, mathematical, socio-economic and environmental sciences. This ensures lecture modules are taught by experts in their subject area and that students at all levels can participate in research using cutting-edge equipment and methods.

I believe that we can offer you a supportive international environment to study in English in which to develop your academic interests at Undergraduate, Masters or PhD level, which will form a solid foundation for your future, joining our many graduates who have already progressed to further study either here at Kyushu or at other leading international universities, or to work in industry or government service. We, the academic and administrative staff, and the students look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to join us at Kyushu University.
