The aim of Education and Research

School of Science

Sciences are the study of revealing nature's truths, and structuring a way to systematically explain universal principles and truths. The aim in the School of Science is to educate students to acquire an ability to think fundamentally through our education and research programs, and to broadly contribute to society with this specialized knowledge, technology, and methodology.

Graduate School of Science

Sciences are the study of revealing nature's truths, and structuring a way to systematically explain universal principles and truths. The Graduate School of Science teaches the laws of nature, and the principles and methods of sciences. Through education and research, we aim to train cutting-edge researchers, who will have a broad perspective, and take an active role in the international arena, and also professionals who can greatly contribute to society with their advanced skills and scholarly wisdom.

Student Voice

Baruti Yemba Yemba
Master course student
Department of Chemistry
“Our group is Bioorganic Chemistry, my research field is synthesis of natural products and I'm working on a synthesis of an antimalarial molecule.

Our laboratory members are really supportive. We are jointly conducting research communicating smoothly in both Japanese and English. Not only my colleagues but also senpais (senior colleagues in Japanese) can provide me with some help. Moreover, Professor Tohru Oishi is my reliable principal investigator. I can ask him a variety of questions about my research anytime and obtain right suggestions from him.

For my stay in Japan, I am receiving a Japanese Government (MEXT) Scholarship and it covers costs to stay here, in Fukuoka. Life here is great. Everything is well organized and transportation is always on time. Also the weather in Fukuoka is really pleasant, not too cold and not too hot. On my days off, I really enjoy playing soccer with my friends and local people.

I am going to graduate with my master's degree this September and will continue to pursue Ph.D. research at Kyushu University.”
Ijin Kang
Doctoral course student
Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences
“Our laboratory members are open-minded and enjoy helping each other, so I have never felt lonely or uneasy living here in Japan. My research involves the environmental changes seen over two million years through observing fossils of microscopic organisms. In addition, I can study a variety of modules including International Cooperation and Health Science in the special “Decision Science Program.” Throughout the program, I have been receiving a scholarship as well as participating in field trips to many places such as Kenya and Indonesia. I must say that studying at Kyushu University is the best choice!”
Nagarjuna Asam
Doctoral course student
Department of Physics
“My research field is spintronics and I work on spin transport in magnetic multilayers and their dynamic properties. In our laboratory, the staff is very kind and give me very useful information not only on research but also on living in Japan and our local area. The Graduate School of Science is located on the huge and beautiful Ito-campus where the room rent and living cost are generally not so expensive. I am receiving Japanese Government (MEXT) Scholarship and it is enough to stay here. That is why Kyushu University is a great place to study.”
