Office of International Affairs - Mission and Purpose

Kitasato University's Office of International Affairs

Kitasato University founder Shibasaburo Kitasato received intensive instruction from Dutch physician Constant George van Mansvelt in Kumamoto, Kitasato's hometown, leading him to the path of medicine. While studying in Germany under Dr. Robert Koch, Kitasato produced a tremendous amount of brilliant research results. As can be seen, Kitasato University clearly has its origins in international interaction.

Kitasato University's Office of International Affairs was established in April 2013 as a management organization to carry out the work of internationalizing the university's education and research. The office handles planning, drafting, surveys, analysis, liaisons, coordination and other work related to the entire university's international activities.
