It's a screening procedure conducted by each department to assess the eligibility of individuals wishing to apply for a master's or doctoral degree program. Individuals who have not completed (or are not expected to complete) a bachelor's degree program or master's program may be deemed eligible to apply if they meet certain requirements. Holders of a bachelor's or master's degree (or expected holders) do not need to request the Individual Assessment of Admission Eligibility. For details, please refer to the eligibility criteria set for each program.
If you graduate with a degree before the intended program starts, you will be eligible. Please submit an original certificate of expected graduation and degree.
No, you are not eligible. If you are temporarily living in Japan (as an exchange student, for example), your application may be accepted. Please contact the Admissions Division before applying. Domestic applications are only accepted for IGP(C).
Japanese citizens not residing in Japan who satisfy the eligibility criteria for each IGP and who hold a visa* that enables them to stay for a long period in the country where they live may apply for this program. Applicants who are Japanese citizens should consult the Admissions Division before applying.
* Permanent residence, student visa, work visa, etc. (Working holiday visas, tourist visas, short-term stay visas, etc. are not accepted when applying for this program.)
Documents such as English proficiency test score reports, evaluation sheets, recommendation letters, etc. that can be sent to the Admissions Division directly from the issuing authority may be submitted separately from the rest of the application documents. However, if all required application documents are not submitted by the application deadline, the application will be rejected.
No. If you are applying for the Integrated Doctoral Education Program under IGP(A), you are required to complete both master’s and doctoral programs. Since you have completed a master's program, you may be able to complete the Integrated Doctoral Education Program in a shorter time. Whether you can shorten the program period is decided by the department.
If the scholarship is conditional on being admitted to Tokyo Tech, apply for IGP(B) for students seeking scholarships offered by non-Japanese governments.
Applicants are not permitted to do the following:
- Apply to a different program at Tokyo Tech while awaiting admission results for another program
- Submit applications to multiple master’s degree programs for the same enrollment period
In both of the above cases, applications will be rejected or revoked. There are no restrictions regarding applications to programs offered by other universities.
