OCU has two overseas liaisons that support international exchange in the fields of education, research and university-industry collaboration.
The OCU Shanghai Liaison is located within the combined Shanghai Office of Osaka City and Osaka Prefecture. Because of the sister-city relationship between Shanghai and Osaka, Shanghai has always been an especially important partner for OCU. Not only do many of our international students come from Shanghai, OCU also has active academic exchange agreements with many universities located in the Shanghai area. In addition, OCU regularly participates in various events, such as the China International Industry Fair, and every year organizes an alumni day for Chinese and Japanese alumni living in China.
The Shanghai Liaison prepares and coordinates all these events and provides general information about OCU, among others via social media. By stimulating and supporting continued academic exchange it is OCU’s goal to contribute to the good relations with the city of Shanghai, its universities and industry.

The Bangkok Office of OCU (OCU BKK) is located within Chulalongkorn University’s Faculty of Fine and Applied Arts, in the middle of Bangkok. With the 2015 creation of the ASEAN Economic Community, Osaka City University wants to participate by welcoming more students from South-East Asia as it will heighten the awareness of the role of this region among Japanese students and educators while also further diversifying its campus.
Building on the long-standing cooperation with Chulalongkorn University and many other universities in Thailand, the OCU Bangkok office will provide a central base for organizing and supporting recruitment of high caliber international students, academic exchange activities and university-industry collaboration projects, both in Thailand and throughout South-East Asia.
