While I said Osaka University was established in 1931, this university originates from "TekiJyuku" which was founded in 1838. "TekiJyuku" was a private academy of western studies. Although this private academy was small and operated only for 30 years, it produced a lot of talented disciples who served as a foundation for the modern nation such as Masujiro Omura and Yukichi Fukuzawa.
