*** Nagasaki University's Proud Characteristics ***
Revised on 12/6/2005
   With its reorganization into a National University Corporation, Nagasaki University has pledged to further enhance and individualize its education and research and to continue its role as a "center for transmission of intellectual information that is indispensable for the world" , while moving forward together with regional societies throughout Asia.
   In the mid-term objectives, we are making efforts to materialize our philosophy by proclaiming that:
  • We, aiming to be a leader among world institutes in both education and research, are working for the implementation of strategic plans to upgrade and individualize education and research.
  • Under the principle of eStudent-Customer-ism' , we attempt to enhance liberal arts education and specialized professional education in both the undergraduate and graduate school level to provide learning of the highest quality as well as to reinforce a support system for overall student life, including admission selection, extra curricular activities, and job-seeking advice.
  • We appropriately manage intellectual properties created in the University. We also give back to the society results of our study and research, through regional, industry-university-government and international cooperation by utilizing intellectual properties and human as well as material resources.
