Features
Blessed with abundant nature and referred to as the country of seiryu (clear water), for historical and geographical reasons, the Gifu region has developed and passed down a diverse culture and technology that brought eastern and western cultures together. Having inherited these attributes from the Gifu region, Gifu University trains students, who will later actively participate in society. We provide a place where students learn, explore, and contribute in an environment conducive to exploration and growth. The university has adopted the principle that it is an integral part of a local community, serving as an institution that learns, explores, and contributes.
Applying the distinguishing feature of having all undergraduate and graduate programs located on a single campus for educational and research activities, Gifu University provides an education focused on training highly skilled professionals. We are committed to conducting high-quality research that is the foundation of that education and to achieving internationalization rooted in the local community. As a core hub for reinvigorating local communities, the university also plays a role in regional revitalization through such efforts as providing local communities with the benefits derived from the above activities.

Gifu University is a mid-sized university with five faculties, four master’s programs, one professional degree program, two doctoral programs and two united graduate schools and one joint graduate school. With the relocation of the school of medicine and university hospital in 2004, all faculties and schools are now located on a single campus. Being able to study at a single campus in the suburbs with abundant nature is an attractive feature of Gifu University.
Gifu University is located north of Gifu City, between Tokyo and Kyoto, and has excellent international accessibility. The city is rich in history and beautiful natural environment symbolized by Gifu Castle, the former residence of Oda Nobunaga, a powerful Daimyo of Japan in the late 16th century. The castle on top of Mt. Kinka looks down the Nagara River where Japan’s largest fireworks display is held every summer. In addition, cormorant fishing, a traditional fishing method that uses trained cormorants to catch river fish, continues to be practiced along the river for centuries (from May to October).
