Who are Student Life Coaches?

The role of Student Life Coaches is to make sure that Tokyo Tech students lead a fulfilling academic life by:

  • helping incoming students with questions or problems they have
  • introducing students to Tokyo Tech's unique education system and its special features
  • directing students to relevant departments or personnel for further help, etc.

We have nine Students Life Coaches. Some are faculty members of the Student Support Center and others are Tokyo Tech alumni with relevant experience.

Consultation covers a wide range of topics about academic programs and options at Tokyo Tech, career development for future goals, etc.

We are here to encourage students to further develop the ability to think, act, and learn independently.

Consultation

We offer support to help students with their studies at Tokyo Tech by providing consultation, guidance, and seminars, etc.
Please come to us if you have any problems or questions regarding campus life or how to take courses or make study plans.
We provide consultation in English.
我们提供使用中文的指導和幇助。

What can Student Life Coaches do for students?

Please consult us in the following situations:

"I need information about course registration and timetables."
"I want to do more than just study at Tokyo Tech. What activities are available?"
"I want to ask a Tokyo Tech graduate with relevant work experience for in-depth advice."
"I am reluctant to consult with faculty members or administrative staff and would prefer to talk with someone who can offer a different perspective."
"I don't know where to go for advice on personal/academic matters."
"I have spoken with the administrators, but I'm not happy with their replies and need further assistance."
"How do I prepare for an interview with my academic advisor?"
"What information should be included in my learning portfolio?"
"I want advice about which undergraduate major or laboratory I should choose. Should I consider studying abroad? How can I develop my career?"
"I have a problem with my study, but I don't want to ask a professor."
"I cannot define my future goals. How do I motivate myself?"
