The International Graduate Program (A) offers a choice of six English-language based curricular programs related to the 15 departments of Tokyo Tech and enables students to obtain a master’s or doctoral degree. There are two types of programs: Integrated Doctoral Education Program and Master’s Program. Some curricular programs are set up as an Integrated Doctoral Education Program, designed to combine the Master’s Program and 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.
