K.U.PROFILE; the Global 30 Project at Kyoto University

K.U.PROFILE: Kyoto University Programs for Future International Leaders

In 2009, the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) launched its Global 30 (G30) Project. The project facilitates the acceptance of overseas students to Japanese universities, promotes strategic international collaboration and supports the formation of centers for the internationalization of Japan. Aiming to provide high quality education by bringing out the full potential of the unique strengths of our institutions, and ultimately provide an educational environment more easily accessible to students from overseas, K.U.PROFILE is Kyoto University’s educational initiative under the G30 Project.
