Tokyo Tech's International Office supports various opportunities for graduate students to study abroad. General information about several of the programs and scholarships for studying abroad can be found below. For a complete list of programs and information about each one, please visitStudy Abroad.
Tokyo Tech has concluded numerous academic cooperation agreements with universities around the world. Many of these agreements include tuition waiver programs that allow Tokyo Tech graduate students to study at a partner university for a semester or a period of up to one year while enrolled at Tokyo Tech. Both Tokyo Tech and the partner university receive and dispatch a designated number of students according to the particular agreement. Students are exempt from paying tuition at the partner university, because they pay tuition at their home university. The exchange programs are designed to boost linguistic proficiency as well as provide opportunities to attend classes in the student's area of expertise and receive academic guidance from faculty at the partner university.
The International Office has information on programs lasting up to one year such as AYSEAS. Successful applicants are selected by the International Office (or by the organization in charge, in the case of external programs.)
The International Office has information on programs lasting more than one year, such as the Tokyo Tech - Tsinghua University Joint Graduate Program and the Renault Foundation Programs. Successful applicants are selected by the International Office
(or by the organization in charge, in the case of external programs.)
In 2011 Tokyo Tech was awarded a Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) grant in the Re-Inventing Japan Project to establish a program, the TKT CAMPUS Asia Consortium. This program accept international students and dispatch Tokyo Tech students abroad with the aim of cultivating global techno-scientific leaders.
The TKT CAMPUS Asia Consortium is a research-oriented joint educational program with Tsinghua University in China and the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) in South Korea.
TASTE provides financial support to Tokyo Tech students who will participate in a summer intensive language program, such as STEP offered by the University of Washington, before beginning a mid- to long-term study abroad or research program through one of Tokyo Tech's exchange programs.
Students who wish to earn a graduate degree or conduct long-term research in their areas of expertise at a graduate school abroad can apply to this program. Tokyo Tech recommends selected students to various private foundations and other organizations which provide financial support in the form of scholarships for these purposes.
