Admission

Entrance Examination for those living overseas wishing to take our doctoral programs

Our doctoral programs offer a chance of entrance in April/October for applicants living in countries other than Japan. The applicants who wish to enter in April must be master’s degree holders or expected to successfully complete their master’s degree or its equivalent by the end of March in the year of admission. The applicants who wish to enter in October must be master’s degree holders or expected to successfully complete their master’s degree or its equivalent by the end of September in the year of admission.

Information from a variety of sources will be considered when evaluating the applications, including the candidate’s purpose of application, the level of knowledge and skills of the candidate in the proposed area of study and the research proposal he or she plans to pursue during the doctoral program. A campus committee evaluates the applications both by document screening and by oral communications via video teleconference systems, such as Polycom and/or Skype. The oral examinations are held either at one of our overseas offices or at a university with which University of Tsukuba has an international exchange agreement.
