  • Degree Program Offered
    Doctoral program

  • Application Period
    Mid August to Mid October


With a diverse group of 12 academic departments participating in IGP(B), for applicants seeking scholarships from their home governments, students should be able to find a department in which to further their research, acquire broader knowledge and understanding, and conduct advanced long-term research in a field that best matches their interests and background.
Qualified international students, who may have little or no knowledge of the Japanese language, can enroll in Tokyo Tech's Master's or Doctoral Programs and pursue an advanced degree in Japan 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.
This program aims to recruit qualified students who are expected to apply for a scholarship offered by a non-Japanese government or organization before their enrollment in a Doctoral Program at Tokyo Tech, and thus need to obtain written confirmation of admission to the program.
Funders of scholarships provided to past applicants include the China Scholarship Council (CSC), the Indonesia Endowment Fund for Education (LPDP), and the Indonesian Directorate General of Higher Education (DGHE or DIKTI).

Applications are now closed. The next call for applications starts in August, 2024

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 Those without a COE will not be permitted to enter Japan, and will be withdrawn from Tokyo Tech if they have already completed the enrollment procedure.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.
