KUFSA (Kyushu University Foreign Students Association) is an organization that represents all foreign students enrolled at Kyushu University (Kyudai). Every year, Kyudai opens its doors to foreign students from various countries and this enables them to automatically become members of KUFSA. Now, KUFSA has students representing up to 87 nations, thus fusing culture and customs from all around the world. To ensure students' happiness, various activities that promote a healthy environment and balance of daily life, study and play, are conducted annually. Our goal is to promote cooperation, collaboration and friendship not only among foreigners, but also with Japanese people.
In ensuring a strong bridge between Japan and the world, KUFSA highlights useful information about living in Fukuoka. We wish that you enjoy your stay and capture many wonderful life challenging experiences, as well as fond memories that will resonate within you. May your studies be fruitful and your life be enriched.
- Promote friendship and exchange among international students from more than 87 countries and the Japanese people.
