An Exchange research student means “an international student from university which has Academic Exchange Agreements.” (Please refer to this page ). You can study for 6 months to 1 year under a professor you wish to study at the University of Tokyo. During this period, you also can learn Japanese useful for your campus activities and your daily life.
Part of our unique culture here at the University of Tokyo is that every student belongs to a laboratory under a supervising professor. Therefore, you as an exchange student also must find a professor who will accept you in his/her lab, and supervise you during your exchange program.
Firstly, you must choose a faculty member of the Graduate School of Information Science and Technology you wish to study under. You need to contact him/her yourself by e-mail and obtain the professor’s approval. (“Informal Acceptance” via email is enough.) You can find professors in IST from this page.
At the same time, you have to contact the student exchange officer in your own university and receive the Official Admission Application Forms and CoE (Certificate of Eligibility) Application Procedure.
After getting “Informal Acceptance” from your prospective supervising professor, please forward the email which you corresponded with him/her to the Office of International Relations, Graduate School of Information Science and Technology by email by the deadline below. (If you could not receive the acceptance by this date, please e-mail us.)
You then submit the Admission documents to the Office of International Relations, Graduate School of Information Science and Technology via e-mail. (Due to Covid-19, we are requiring the e-mail submission.)
