Welcome to the Global Science Course in the School of Science, the University of Tokyo.

Global Science Course was designed to create an international platform enhancing cross-cultural interactions among young minds from around the world coming together to learn science at one of the top universities in the world, the University of Tokyo.

The curriculum covers a variety of interdisciplinary research areas in basic sciences. We therefore encourage students from various scientific backgrounds to apply for GSC. All classes are conducted in English by world-leading professors who are pursuing cutting-edge research in the most advanced fields, while also focusing on the fostering of students who will lead the next generation in science communities.

GSC was launched successfully from April 2014 and is now running smoothly thanks to the sincere efforts made by the professors in the Department of Chemistry and by the staff members in the GSC office.

In October 2014, we welcomed seven bright undergraduate transfer students from overseas under GSC. We are pleased to learn that they are enjoying not only their academic lives at the University of Tokyo but also their everyday lives in Tokyo.

I strongly believe that the University of Tokyo’s long established history of commitment to excellence in research and education will help develop the potentials of the young students in GSC.
