Hiroshima University (HU) is a national institution established in Hiroshima, the world’s first atomic bombed city in human history. Based on its founding principle of “a single unified university, free and pursuing peace”, HU has contributed to the creation of a diversified, free and peaceful global community as an exceptional institution of learning in the fields of education, research, medical services, and social contribution.

Comprising 12 schools, 5 graduate schools, an attached research institute, a university hospital, and other facilities, HU is one of the largest comprehensive research universities in Japan.

In terms of education and research, HU was selected as one of 13 universities for the ‘Top Global University Project’ (top type) in 2014, and as one of 13 universities for the ‘WISE (Doctoral Program for World-leading Innovative & Smart Education) Program’ in 2018.

The University’s social contributions are evident from its ranking in the ‘Impact Ranking 2022’, which evaluates social contribution capabilities within the framework of the SDGs. HU was ranked among the top 100 in the world in 5 of the 17 SDGs.

HU is also making a concerted effort to become more international and multicultural. As of Nov. 1, 2023, there are 1,951 international students from 94 countries and regions at HU. Last year, the Arizona State University/Thunderbird Graduate School of Global Management-Hiroshima University Global Initiative was established on the grounds of the Higashi-Hiroshima campus and is expected to serve as a bridge to the world as a global campus.

Aiming to further expand globally while remaining deeply rooted in the local community, HU will seek to broaden its horizons in the fields of education, research and social contribution, both during and after the coronavirus era.
