NTUB has signed a sister-school Memorandum of Understanding with Kurume University.
Founded in 1946, Kurume University is a private university in the city of Kurume on the island of Kyushu, Fukuoka prefecture, Japan.
The roots of the university can be traced back to 1928, when Kyushu Medical School, its precursor, was founded, but it came into being with the establishment of the faculty of commerce.
Today, the university is made up of 13 departments over six undergraduate faculties of literature, economics, commerce and law, as well as the school of medicine. There are five graduate schools of comparative studies of international cultures and societies, psychology, commerce, medicine and the professional school of law. It also includes the Institute of Foreign Language Education.
The university is spread out over two main campuses: the older Asahi-machi campus, which is situated on the south bank of the Chikugo River, and the Mii Campus, which is in the east of Kurume.
Overall, there are nearly 7,000 undergraduate students at Kurume University, over 300 graduate students. There are also nearly 50 students on the one-year and 18-month Intensive Japanese Courses.
