Niigata University has a long institutional history, with origins going back some 150 years. Since our inauguration as a national university in 1949 under the new university system, we have played an important role in higher education and research in Japan.
Over the years, we have grown into a large-scale comprehensive university offering bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degree programs under ten faculties and five graduate schools in a wide range of disciplines spanning the humanities, education, law, economics, science, engineering, agriculture, medicine, health sciences, and dentistry. We have a student body of approximately 13,000 and 3,000 academic and administrative staff members.
As a research-oriented university, we boast several world-leading research institutes, including the Brain Research Institute and the Research Institute for Natural Hazards and Disaster Recovery as well as a university hospital providing high-level medical care as an advanced treatment hospital for the region.one
