Kyoto University

Founded in 1897, Kyoto University is acknowledged as one of the most accomplished research-oriented universities in Asia. The validity of that reputation is testified by the accolades conferred on our alumni researchers, most notably eight Nobel Prize laureates who undertook vital research during their time at the university. In addition to those awards, several other Kyoto University faculty members have received respected accolades, including two Fields Medalists and one recipient of the Gauss Prize.
