Kobe University International Students' Symposium (KISS) is a bilingual (English/Japanese) study camp style symposium (1 night, 2 days) aimed to promote intercultural and mutual understanding through free and active discussion.

The idea of KISS is to enrich intercultural and mutual understanding through students gathering on campus at Kobe University, and freely and actively participate in discussions using Japanese and English.
Planning, preparation, and implementation is all done by the student representatives. Since 2012, students have be able to attend a lecture about fostering global leadership, which is available to all university students, with the intention to develop a series of learning processes such as those needed for the planning, preparation and implementation of KISS.

The 2 day symposium consists of discussions, debates and presentations in Japanese and English. Through these, students can enrich their friendships beyond nationality and language.
