Osaka's academic heritage begins in 1724 with the opening of Kaitokudo - a place of general study for merchants. Formed out of the former imperial university in 1949, its three sites accommodate some 23,700 students and around 3,000 academics. It has two university hospitals, five research institutes and 27 academic schools.
