Fukuoka Campus

A campus that promotes the ideals of humanity and compassion for others

Formally launched in April 2014, the Fukuoka Campus occupies a spacious site of around 43,000 m2 overlooking the Ariake Sea and boasts extensive facilities with five floors above ground for a combined total floor space of some 20,000 m2. The vast open space in the center of the campus provides an oasis of nature with landscaping designed to accentuate seasonal changes throughout the year. It is the perfect place for students, researchers and visitors to relax and discuss their work.

The campus has been designed to provide a comfortable and welcoming learning environment for students, with lecture theaters that make maximum use of available sunlight and a library that is readily accessible to all. The Department of Physical Therapy, Department of Occupational Therapy, Department of Nursing and Department of Radiological Technology are directly associated with working medical facilities. Students enjoy access to the latest medical equipment and machinery to aid their studies of the latest developments in medical technology and the evolution of health care policy.
