Hiroshima University (HU) is one of the largest and most comprehensive research universities in Japan. Based on its founding principle, "a single unified university, free and pursuing peace," we are committed to promoting research that benefits the future of humankind while fostering excellent human resources. HU is comprised of 12 schools, 4 graduate schools, and a university hospital.  As of May 2020, HU has more than 1,800 faculty, 1,700 staff members, and about 15,000 students. Amid increasing globalization, we aim to enhance international competitiveness in the field of academic research.

HU has been selected to be one of the Japanese institutions to receive support from the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports Science and Technology (MEXT) as part of The Program for Promoting the Enhancement of Research Universities. Against this backdrop, HU Writing Center started to expand its services in November 2013 with a mission to foster the university’s education and research activities by supporting everyone from undergraduate to graduate students and faculty members in improving their academic writing skills.

HU aspires to enhance its international competitiveness and reputation in global academic and educational fields by publishing more of its research results in English language journals and releasing research outcomes to international audiences. To make this possible, we created a paid fellowship program in 2016 which is ideal for someone who wishes to gain professional experience working with non-native English writers and speakers, focusing on academic writing at the tertiary level and above. The Fellow will work full-time at HU, located at two campuses in Higashi-Hiroshima and Kasumi.
