The Tokyo Institute of Technology has launched its International Graduate Program in 2007 to offer qualified international students an opportunity to enroll in Tokyo Tech’s Master’s or Doctoral Programs and pursue an advanced degree in Japan.
This program aims to recruit qualified students who are expected to apply for a scholarship offered by a non-Japanese government or organization before their enrollment in a Doctoral Program at Tokyo Tech, and have to obtain written confirmation of admission to the Program.
Students are expected to complete successfully their study in three years. To get their doctoral degree, students have to earn the designated number of credits as indicated by their department in a predetermined program of study, complete and receive approval of their research thesis, and pass a comprehensive final examination. Students who demonstrate outstanding academic and research performance during the program may be able to reduce their period of study.
