Kyoto University campus

The campus of Kyoto University is located in Kyoto. This is a fairly large city that opens up many opportunities for students: from cafes, restaurants and other entertainment to internships at large companies. But an urban campus can also be a disadvantage, because big city life distracts some students from their studies. The school has a library where students can do their homework or just relax. The exchange of intercultural experience occupies a special place in training at Kyoto University. The educational institution regularly invites foreign students to participate in exchange programs and organizes various joint events.
