Global Science Graduate Course (GSGC)

Global Science Graduate Course (GSGC) is an international graduate program in the Graduate School of Science at the University of Tokyo, which allows students to obtain their degrees in English. This program welcomes excellent graduates from universities all over the world, fostering world-class science professionals, and standardizes a five-year integrated education scheme in which students attend both the Master’s program and the Doctoral program in sequence. Students on GSGC are also provided with a monthly scholarship during their time on the program and support in finding employment following graduation.

The educational and research objectives of GSGC are to create new streams of knowledge, develop them, and pass them on to future generations in an enduring search for a fundamental understanding of nature. As a global hub for the development and dissemination of scientific knowledge, the Graduate School of Science at the University of Tokyo seeks to build upon its strong foundation of prominent research. Here, the next generation of scientists learn the principles and methodologies within their field, while evolving into global citizens equipped with the alacrity, ingenuity, and scientific wisdom required to tackle unknown challenges in the future world. In realization of this goal, it has become essential to involve a greater number of international students. This creates a globalized learning environment for the advancement of both cutting edge education and research.

  • Those who are capable of grasping phenomena from an objective and global perspective, developing methodologies for clarifying unknown phenomena, and deepening our understanding of nature through concise, logical thought.
  • Those who are able to tackle new research targets and explore new frontiers on the basis of original ideas outside of previously established ways of thinking.
  • Those who aspire to play an active role internationally at the forefront of science by taking full advantage of the expertise and advanced research abilities gained in their graduate school studies.
