Tokyo Institute of Technology Scholarship for International Student 2020-2021

Deadline : 21 October 2020
About Tokyo Institute of Technology

Tokyo Institute of Technology (“Tokyo Tech”) launched its International Graduate Program in October 2007 as an opportunity for qualified international students, who may have little or no Japanese language ability, to enroll in Tokyo Tech’s Master’s or Doctoral Programs and pursue an advanced degree in Japan.

With a diverse group of academic departments participating in this program, students should be able to find a department in which to further their research, acquire broader knowledge and understanding, and conduct advanced long-term research in a field that best matches their interests and background.

There is no Japanese language requirement for this program as lectures and seminars are held in English. However, students are given opportunities to attend Japanese language classes on a regular basis in order to better adapt to daily life in Japan.

About the program

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 thus need to obtain written confirmation of admission to the Program. Funders of scholarships provided to past applicants include the China Scholarship Council (CSC), the Indonesia Endowment Fund for Education (LPDP) and the Indonesian Directorate General of Higher Education (DGHE or DIKTI).

Eligibility

This recruitment prospectus relates to Doctoral Programs scheduled to begin in September 2021.

Students are expected to successfully complete their supervised study within three years. To attain a doctoral degree, students need to earn the designated number of credits outlined 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.
