Before applying, you must read the following information carefully and consult with the relevant office of your affiliated College, Faculty, or Graduate School that you are scheduled to belong to at the time of the program to fully understand all important academic matters at UTokyo when studying abroad.
・Applicants must be students who are enrolled as full-time undergraduate or graduate students at the University during the period of application and the study abroad program.

・Undergraduate students who enrolled in or after April of 2018 must register for Go Global Gateway (including submission and approval of their Go Global Statement) prior to their application. Please allow enough time for submission as the Go Global Statement may not be approved in one go.
・Before applying, applicants must make sure that the program does not interfere with their courses by checking the examination date and other important scheduled class events as well as their personal schedules. Applicants may apply to the programs only after they have confirmed that it is possible for them to participate throughout the period. (As there is a limit to the number of possible participants in the program, withdrawing one’s application after the internal selection means a loss of the chance to study abroad for other students. Note that in principal, students are discouraged from withdrawing their applications after submission.)
・In cases where you cannot attend classes at UTokyo for a specified period, the handling of such situations shall be determined by your College, Faculty, or Graduate School of affiliation during the program term. There is no guarantee that students’ study abroad schedules will be taken into special consideration, therefore please confirm and make sure you understand before applying.
* If you are affiliated to the College of Arts and Sciences Junior Division, not attending classes or exams due to participation in a study abroad program will be considered as an absence, it will also not be an acceptable reason for a make-up exam. Contact the office of College of Arts and Sciences for more details.
・Students who already have a supervisor or equivalent at the University must notify them of their application to the program in advance and receive approval from the supervisor. Then they are to fill in the date they received approval in the application on UTAS as specified. If a student does not have a supervisor or equivalent, write ‘no supervisor’ in the space specified.
