How to Enroll in Degree Programs in Systems and Information Engineering

There are two ways for international students to study in the Degree Programs in Systems and Information Engineering: to become a regular degree seeking graduate student, or non-degree research student (Kenkyusei).

Some people become non-degree research students at first, and then become regular students after preparing for graduate school admission. You can also take an exam to become a regular student from the beginning.

Regular Graduate Students

Students enrolled in Master’s/3-year Doctoral/5-year Doctoral Programs aim to obtain the degree that each program defines as its goal.
For more information on becoming a regular graduate student, see:
“Graduate School Degree Students” and “Special Selection of International Students”.

Non-Degree Research Students (Kenkyusei)

Non-Degree Research Students (Kenkyusei) refers to students who perform research on specific research topics under the guidance of an instructor at the University of Tsukuba. Although research students are able to attend classes related to research upon the approval of an instructor or faculty in charge of a class, they cannot acquire credits, or Master’s or Doctoral degrees.

For more information on becoming a research student, see:
“Graduate School Non-degree Students”.

Support for International Students after Enrollment
Tutors are assigned for each international student in degree programs as required, in order to provide the necessary support. A consultation office is also available for international students in each specific degree program, where the faculty in charge provides consultations on daily life and learning.
