History[edit] Academic traditions of the university reach back to Kaitokudō (懐徳堂), an Edo-period school for local citizens founded in 1724, and Tekijuku
Tekijuku
(適塾), a school of Rangaku
Rangaku
for samurai founded by Ogata Kōan
Ogata Kōan
in 1838. The spirit of the university's human sciences is believed to be intimately rooted in Kaitokudo, whereas that of the natural and applied sciences, including medicine, is widely believed to be based on Tekijuku.[4] Osaka
Osaka
University traces its origin back to 1869 when Osaka
Osaka
Prefectural Medical School was founded in downtown Osaka. The school was later transformed into the Osaka
Osaka
Prefectural Medical College with university status by the University Ordinance (Imperial Ordinance No. 388 of 1918) in 1919. The college merged with the newly founded College of Science to form Osaka
Osaka
Imperial University(大阪帝國大学) in 1931. Osaka
Osaka
Imperial University was inaugurated as the sixth imperial university in Japan. As part of the University, Osaka
Osaka
Technical College was later included to form the school of Engineering
Engineering
two years later. The university was eventually renamed Osaka
Osaka
University in 1947. Merging with Naniwa High School and Osaka
Osaka
High School as a result of the government's education system reform in 1949, Osaka
Osaka
University started its postwar era with five faculties: Science, Medicine, Engineering, Letters, and Law. After that, faculties, graduate schools, and research institutes have been successively established. Among these are the School of Engineering
Engineering
Science, the first of its kind among Japanese national universities, which draws upon the excellence of both sciences and engineering disciplines, and the School of Human Sciences, which covers its cross-disciplinary research interest as broadly as psychology, sociology, and education. Built on the then-existing faculties, 10 graduate schools were set up as part of the government's education system reform program in 1953. Two graduate schools, the Graduate School of Language and Culture and the cross-disciplinary and cross-institutional Osaka
Osaka
School of International Public Policy, add to the list, making the number of graduate schools reach 12 in 1994. In 1993, Osaka
Osaka
University Hospital was relocated from the Nakanoshima campus in downtown Osaka
Osaka
to the Suita campus, completing the implementation of the university's plan to integrate the scattered facilities into the Suita and Toyonaka campuses. In October 2007, a merger between Osaka
Osaka
University and Osaka
Osaka
University of Foreign Studies was completed. The merger made Osaka
Osaka
University one of two national universities in the country with a School of Foreign Studies (with Tokyo University of Foreign Studies). In addition, the merger made the university the largest national university in the country.

In 2009, Osaka
Osaka
University implemented a major revision of its website. The result is a website much more accessible and informative to persons not versed in the Japanese language — a site much more user-friendly to international exchange students, international researchers, and expatriates living in the Osaka
Osaka
area. Currently, thanks to the work of the "Creative Unit," virtually all Osaka University's web pages come in pairs — a Japanese page and the same page in English. These pairings include frequent updates on symposiums, seminars, and other events open to staff, students and, often, the general public. Campuses[edit]

Toyonaka campus main entrance

Suita, Toyonaka and Minoh are the university's three campuses. Home to the university's headquarters, the Suita campus extends across Suita city and Ibaraki city in Osaka
Osaka
prefecture. The Suita campus houses faculties of Human Sciences, Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmaceutical Sciences, and Engineering. It contains the Graduate School of Frontier Biosciences and a portion of the Graduate School of Information Science and Technology. The campus is also home to the Osaka University Hospital and the Nationwide Joint Institute of Cybermedia Center and Research Center for Nuclear Physics. Because access to the campus by public transportation is relatively inconvenient, automobiles, motorcycles, and bicycles are commonly seen within the campus. While sports activities are primarily concentrated on the Toyonaka campus, tennis activities are concentrated on the Suita campus because of its many tennis facilities. The Toyonaka campus is home to faculties of Letters, Law, Economics, Science, and Engineering
Engineering
Science. It is also the academic base for Graduate Schools of International Public Policy, Language and Culture, (a portion of) Information Science, and the Center for the Practice of Legal and Political Expertise. All freshmen attend classes on the Toyonaka campus during their first year of enrollment. The Minoh campus was incorporated following the merger with Osaka University of Foreign Studies in October 2007. The Minoh campus is home to School of Foreign Studies, Research Institute for World Languages, and Center for Japanese Language and Culture. In addition to these three campus, the former Nakanoshima campus, the university's earliest campus located in downtown Osaka, served as the hub for the faculty of medicine until the transfer to the Suita campus was completed in 1993.[5] Starting from April 2004, the Nakanoshima campus has been transformed into the "Nakanoshima Center", serving as a venue for information exchange, adult education classes, and activities involving academic as well as non-academic communities. Organization[edit] Osaka
Osaka
University has 11 faculties (学部) for undergraduate programs, 16 graduate schools (大学院),[6] 21 research institutes, 4 libraries, and 2 university hospitals.[7]

Academic alliances[edit] Osaka
Osaka
University has completed academic exchange agreements with a large number of universities (in 2011, 92) throughout the world and also exchange agreements between schools at Osaka
Osaka
University and schools and institutes in other countries (in 2011, 366). These agreements facilitate international students studying at Osaka University and Osaka
Osaka
University students studying at overseas universities, schools, and institutes. In many cases, students are able to participate in these exchange agreements without paying any additional tuition.[8] Below are examples of some of these universities:
