Kurume University has developed as a comprehensive private university since it was established as Kyushu Medical School in 1928. It now consists of 6 faculties with 13 departments, 5 graduate schools, and 21 research centers.

Our principal purpose is:
 To search for truth and justice,
 To aim for human love and respect,
 To foster people who will have practical knowledge, noble ideas and a deep sense of humanity,
 To brighten the regional culture and show its brilliant results to the world, and to contribute to the peace of the world.

While respecting the traditions of over 80 years, new faculties and departments have also been added in order to meet the various needs of today's society.

In the field of research, in addition to being active in developing unique projects, we highly encourage university-industry-government collaborations.

Kurume University also has a Senior High School and Junior High School. Their purpose is to educate students who will be ambitious and who will be a asset to society. Both schools enjoy a high reputation, as many of its graduates are accepted into Japan's leading universities.

Kurume City, where our University is situated, is located in the vast plain region called the “Chikugo Plain” in the southern part of Fukuoka Prefecture in Kyushu. The City sits as if embraced by the “Chikugo River”, the largest river in Kyushu and one of the three wildest rivers in Japan. It is a beautiful town suitable for research and study.
We welcome you to Kurume University.
