International Exchange/Visiting Students FAQ

Research Students

Tokyo Tech accepts non-regular 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, attending may be possible with approval from the course instructor.

Non-degree Students

The non-degree student system makes it possible for Tokyo Tech to meet the needs of different types of student, including mid-career professionals, by allowing them to acquire credit for taking regular university courses.
