About

Registration
WELCOME TO THE EU CENTRE OF KYUSHU UNIVERSITY

The Kyushu University EU Centre was established in December 2010 as an institution in Kyushu University to promote and support the activities of the European Union Institute in Japan, Kyushu (EUIJ-Kyushu) administered by a consortium of Seinan Gakuin University, Fukuoka Women’s University, and Kyushu University, which began its operation in April 2011. EUIJ-Kyushu was one of the academic institutions worldwide which had provided students, researchers, and the public with various opportunities to broaden their knowledge of all aspects of the EU and its member countries, and had disseminated information related to the EU.

EUIJ-Kyushu ended its 5-year operation in March 2016. As a result of its wide-ranging activities, including EU-DPs, it had developed into a beneficial programme in the field of education and research related to the EU. Now, the EU Centre is set to continue building on this accomplishment as it begins its new term from June 2016. >>>
