 ADMISSION FOR RESEARCH STUDENT

It is strongly recommended to enroll as a “Research Student” or “Graduate Research Student” (Kenkyū-sei in Japanese) for one year before entering as a Master’s or Doctoral Student. Enrolment as a “Research Student” or “Graduate Research Student” is a way in which as a non-degree seeking student you can prepare to enroll into a degree-seeking postgraduate program; during this it is possible to join a laboratory and start work under an academic supervisor and begin your research before your enrollment in a regular degree-seeking program. You will also be able to use this time to prepare for the examination to enter a Master’s or Doctoral program, as well as to learn Japanese through the language courses offered by the university.
