About Us

Osaka Seikei University offers a choice of three faculties, each providing students with a range of unique courses. Whatever their tastes, they can learn from each other and inspire their peers while striving to learn and develop all the while. One of the qualities that sets our institution apart is our focus on collective and active learning. We leverage project-based learning to identify relevant issues while engaging with society and look into and devise solutions. Tapping into the energy of students striving to learn is how we empower support for society going forward, and I hope to help society develop by reforming university education.
