Type G (For Graduates)


Most Faculties and Graduate Schools of the University of Tokyo (UTokyo) accept exchange students who can register for courses or conduct research under the guidance of faculty members. In the Type G program, exchange students are usually required to possess a high level of fluency in the Japanese/English language so they can take courses offered to regular students. For those who take part in research activities, the language requirement will be determined on an individual basis.
