Welcome to the Global Science Course.

Global Science Course (GSC) is an undergraduate transfer program in the School of Science at the University of Tokyo. It was established to create an international platform that enhances cross-cultural interactions among young minds from around the world coming together to learn science at one of the top universities in the world.

All the GSC classes and lab sessions 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 of scientists. As the GSC curriculum covers a variety of interdisciplinary research areas in basic science, students from various scientific backgrounds are encouraged to apply to this program.

Since its launch in 2014, we have welcomed many bright undergraduate transfer students from various countries. We are pleased to know that they have been enjoying their academic lives at the University of Tokyo as well as their everyday lives in Japan.

We strongly believe that the University of Tokyo’s long established history of commitment to excellence in research and education will help develop the potential of young students on GSC. On behalf of the faculty, staff, and students, I am delighted to welcome you to the School of Science at the University of Tokyo.
