Undergraduate Research Students

Enrollment as an Undergraduate Research Student

Undergraduate research students belong to a special category for those who wish to engage in research activities in specialized fields. No degrees or qualifications are awarded to undergraduate research students after the completion of a research term.

Qualifications for Applying
Applicants must be university graduates or have completed 16 years of school education. However, some Faculties may accept applications from those who have completed 14 years of education (equivalent of junior college graduates in Japan).

Application Procedures
All applicants are required to submit their application documents to the Faculty in which they wish to enroll. Since the immigration process for Japan tends to take a long time, it is necessary to complete the application procedures at least six months prior to admission. Please contact the relevant Faculty office for more information.
