2021 Kyoto University of Advanced Science (KUAS) Scholarship in Japan

Kyoto University of Advanced Science (KUAS) can look back on a 50-year history as an accredited private educational institution in the academic heartland of Japan. To take the next step and challenge on the global scale, KUAS invited a top-notch CEO of a Kyoto-based globally successful firm as chairman, aiming to offer its academic resources in the international arena. The establishment of an innovative English-taught engineering program is one major example of these efforts, as KUAS continues to strengthen its commitment to being at the apex of modern education.

Kyoto University of Advanced Science has opened Regular Entry applications for September 2021 enrollment in the KUAS Faculty of Engineering and Graduate School of Engineering.

KUAS offers two types of scholarship: The Super KUAS-E scholarship and the KUAS-E scholarship. Scholarships are provided to a limited number of outstanding students based on a number of factors including but not limited to academic ability, achievements, social contributions, application contents and others.
