Promote cultural exchange between international and Japanese students
Provide support for the international student community in Osaka University.
Improve cross-cultural understanding by reaching to local communities
OUISA is a volunteer organization and the moment you register as a foreign student at Osaka University you become a member of OUISA. But if you are interested in playing an active role in OUISA please feel free to talk to us or visits. OUISA is all about sharing, learning and networking among the students of Osaka University. We focus on strengthening the friendship, understanding and sharing of experiences among the students from different ethnic communities coming from different parts of the world. You may be a short-term exchange student, or an undergraduate or graduate student who will be studying at Osaka University for a longer period. Yet you may want to meet other likeminded students and share experiences, organize and participate in events and most importantly make friends. At OUISA, this is what we do. As OUISA, we provide the platform for students to meet each other, share experiences and take part in different events.
