Features of the ALPS course

The plural supervision system

Each student in this course is assigned a secondary supervisor, in addition to their main supervisor. Only ALPS instructors can take on the role of secondary supervisor (see next section).

Financial support of ALPS students

ALPS students receive a monthly grant of 200,000 yen, beginning in the latter half of their first year in the Master's program. The grant will continue to be given until each student receives their PhD degree, provided that their period of benefit during their Doctoral studies does not exceed three years.
