Universities in Japan By Prefecture K-M

Japanese Universities.

See a listing of private and public universities in Japan, including foreign universities in Japan. Included here is a list of universities in Kagawa, Kagoshima, Kanagawa, Kochi, Kumamoto, Kyoto, Mie, Miyagi and Miyazaki prefectures.

Japanese universities may be four-year universities (daigaku 大学) or two year universities known as (tankidaigaku 短期大学) or Junior Colleges.

The majority of universities in Japan are private institutions but each prefecture may have one or two national or prefectural universities, usually located in the prefectural capital, where in general standards of students are higher and fees are lower.

Students do not live on campus and in general most Japanese students stay at home and commute to their studies at a local university or college.

The state universities and better private universities do attract students from all over Japan who will leave home and live in dormitories or private rented accommodation.

The Japanese school year begins in early April and at university level consists of two semesters of 15 weeks, known in Japanese as zenki and kouki.

University entrance examinations are held in February. Student university festivals take place in the autumn. Most of February and March is the spring vacation; August and September is the summer university break.
