  • Tsinghua University

    Located in the northwestern suburbs of Beijing, Tsinghua University was established in 1911 on the site of “Qing Hua Yuan (Tsinghua Garden)” —a former royal garden of the Qing Dynasty. Partly funded by the “Gengzi Indemnity”, also known as “Boxer Indemnity,” it functioned at first as a preparatory school called “Tsinghua Xuetang (Tsing Hua Imperial College)” for those students who were sent by the government to study in the United States.

    On April 29, 1911, Tsinghua Xuetang began its first term of study, and from that year on, the Tsinghua’s anniversary has fallen on the last Sunday of April. The name was changed to “Tsinghua Xuexiao (Tsing Hua College)” after the 1911 Revolution.
    In 1925, Tsinghua launched its four-year undergraduate programme. In 1928, its name was changed to “Guoli Tsinghua Daxue (National Tsinghua University),” and in the autumn of 1929 its graduate school was set up.

    Although officially founded in 1931 as Japan's 6th imperial university, you may be interested to learn that Osaka University's roots reach back to1838 and Tekijuku, a private "place of learning" founded by OGATA Koan. As the author SHIBA Ryotaro wrote at the beginning of his historical novel Kashin, Teijuku, a private “place of learning” in Semba, Osaka, for Western medicine was the predecessor of Osaka University. Thanks to Tekijuku, the passion for scholarship of Osaka citizens and the spirit of “For people, for society, and for benevolence,” were passed on to Osaka University.

  • Chiba University

    The history of Chiba University, including predecessors, can be traced back about 140 years. As university charter “Always Aim Higher” implies, we strive to become a world-leading institution by working closely with students, faculty, administration, our local community, our country, and people all over the world. Today, with 9 faculties and 11 graduate schools, Chiba University is achieving that goal.

     
    The incorporation of national universities in 2004 brought newfound freedom to Chiba University, yet it also presented a new set of challenges and obstacles. Faced with a wide range of problems including management issues, we had to ask ourselves some fundamental questions: What is the problem? What is our objective? What should we do? How do we evaluate the results? Overcoming these challenges require the cooperation of everyone involved with the university ranging from students to faculty and staff. This open-minded approach to problems is the most crucial asset of the university. 
     
    Chiba University fosters creative students who learn proactively and use their talents to make positive contributions to society. Results produced from their research are used to benefi t people throughout the world. Our university is continuously striving forward by creating new organizations to strengthen management and cultivating educational environments to achieve academic success. We view student activities with the highest regard.
     
    It is very important to understand the evolution of changes in history in order to accurately understand the present. This helps us enhance and further develop Chiba University for an everchanging world. I hope that you find this booklet useful as we continue on our journey to aim higher.
