Undergraduate Degree Required; No Current University Affiliation Required
Tokyo Tech accepts non-degree-seeking students who wish to conduct research under the guidance of Tokyo Tech faculty members (academic supervisors) as Research Students. Given that research is the purpose of admission, proof of sufficient scholastic ability to conduct research is a prerequisite for acceptance. Prospective applicants should contact the faculty member whom they wish to supervise their research and receive that professor's consent before filing an application. In principle, Research Students cannot take classes. However, should an academic supervisor find it necessary for a Research Student to take a course, auditing may be possible with approval from the course instructor.
