UTokyo Global Unit Courses (UTokyo GUC) is a short-term intensive program offered by the Center for Global Education (GlobE). This program, where UTokyo faculty conducts lectures exclusively in English, is open to exceptional students worldwide, including those from UTokyo. Joining UTokyo GUC allows students to learn in an English environment, interact with students from around the world on a familiar campus, and experience a cost-free study opportunity similar to studying abroad while staying in Tokyo. Participants will be awarded "Global Units," (*) and a certificate with grades, referred to as a Certificate, will be issued by GlobE.
(*) Global Units can fulfill one of the activities required to satisfy the Go Global Gateway certificate requirement. Unlike regular units offered by faculties and graduate schools, they cannot be counted toward graduation requirements.
