About Kwansei Gakuin

Kwansei Gakuin (KG) is one of the most prestigious private school foundations in Japan, dating back to 1889, when it was established by American Christian missionaries in Harada, Kobe. It is now a comprehensive and integrated educational institution spread across eight campuses.

The Kwansei Gakuin Educational Foundation includes Kwansei Gakuin University (KGU) - colloquially known as Kangaku – which offers bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degrees to around 25,000 students in over 80 different disciplines across 14 undergraduate schools and 14 graduate schools. In addition to KGU and Senri & Osaka International Schools of Kwansei Gakuin, the foundation also encompasses Seiwa Junior College, Kwansei Gakuin Senior and Junior High Schools, Kwansei Gakuin Elementary School, and Kwansei Gakuin Kindergarten.

The Kwansei Gakuin advantage

Senri International Campus, with its two international schools and approximately 750 students, is playing an important and leading role as KG develops into a truly global educational institution. The students and faculty at Senri and Osaka International Schools (SOIS) are at the forefront of our efforts to offer an integrated kindergarten-to-graduate school education that is one of the most dynamic, outward-looking and renowned in Japan. At the same time, being part of a much larger educational institution offers SOIS many substantial opportunities that are not available to smaller independent schools - the ‘KG advantage’.
