Okayama University of Science
From 2015–2018, Okayama University of Science's operator, the group Kake Gakuen, applied for permission to open a new school of veterinary medicine in Ehime Prefecture, across the water from Okayama on the island of Shikoku. This school would be a branch of the Okayama University of Science. The government's aid in sweeping away regulatory concerns and speeding the process ignited accusations of corruption, as Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was alleged to be friendly with the owner of Kake Gakuen, Kotaro Kake.
In 2020, another controversy broke out after it was revealed that all ethnically Korean students applying to the university's recently added school of veterinary medicine in October 2019 were denied and failed with scores of zero (out of fifty) on their entrance examination.
