The spirit of the International Program
The Graduate School of Information Science established an International Program in the Master's Program in April 2011 with an aim to encourage enrollment of outstanding students from contries worldwide and so as to carry out our social responsibilities as a national university in promoting Japan's international competitiveness in technology and contribution to the global community.
The International Program is designed to serve mainly international students, offering research and education environments (lectures, research supervision, office help, etc.) in English, as well as opportunities for students to familiarize themselves with Japanese culture.
A wide range of subjects are provided in information science and in such interdisciplinary topics as intellectual property and professional ethics. In addition, students in the International Program are free to take most of the subjects that make up the Standard Program (usually given in Japanese).
"International Program in Information Science focused on Course Work and Empirical Training" has also been launched since 2013. The program has been selected as one of the "International Priority Graduate Programs" by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology-Japan (MEXT) and students who pass the MEXT scholarship screening will be supported by the MEXT Scholarship.
