The International Graduate Program (A) offers a choice of five English-language based curricular programs related to 14 departments at Tokyo Tech and enables students to obtain a master’s or doctoral degree. There are two types of program: the Integrated Doctoral Education Program and the Master’s Program. Some curricular programs are set up as an Integrated Doctoral Education Program, designed to combine the Master’s Program and the Doctoral Program so that graduate students can obtain both degrees within three to five years.

There is no Japanese language requirement for this program as lectures and seminars are held in English. However, students are given opportunities to attend Japanese language classes on a regular basis in order to better adapt to daily life in Japan.

A limited number of students with outstanding academic records are eligible to apply for a scholarship from Japan’s Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) with a recommendation from Tokyo Tech.

Applications are now closed.

Measures to help control infection for international students

To manage the risk of infectious diseases at the Institute, international students
(including those from other domestic universities, technical colleges, and Japanese
language schools) who have passed the entrance exam, are urged to submit a health
certificate signed by a physician in the last three months before enrollment.

Application for COE

Tokyo Tech will apply on behalf of successful applicants for a Certificate of Eligibility (COE) after the examination results are released. There may be cases, however, where the COE application is rejected by the Immigration Services Agency of Japan. Those without a COE will not be permitted to enter Japan, and will be withdrawn from Tokyo Tech if they have already completed the enrollment procedure. Please also note that enrollment and tuition fees once paid will not be refunded under any circumstances. Tokyo Tech has a system for postponing payment of those fees.

University Integration

Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) will be integrated with Tokyo Medical and Dental University (TMDU) as of fall 2024. The tentative name of the new university is "Institute of Science Tokyo". Please note that up to the day before integration, all students currently studying at and newly enrolling at Tokyo Tech or TMDU will belong to the university at which they enrolled. As of the integration day, they will become students of the new university.
