Founded in the spirit of Christian humanism, Momoyama Gakuin (St. Andrew´s) University seeks to put that ethos into practice through an educational policy that promotes the fostering of "Citizens of the World". As one aspect of that policy, the University has created affiliations with educational institutions throughout the world in order to facilitate international student exchange. Every year it welcomes into its fold dozens of international students, at the same time as dispatching large numbers of Momoyama students to one or another of its overseas affiliated schools on short- or long-term programmes.
The Kansai region of which Osaka forms a part is steeped in Japanese history, and the southern part of that region where the University campus is located has cultural remains dating back more than 1000 years. We invite you to spend some of your time as a student with us and see what both traditional and modern Japan have to offer. You will find waiting for you a community of warm-hearted teachers, staff and students who will provide overall support for every aspect of your stay, in Momoyama´s unique spirit of international open-mindedness.
