The University of Tokyo Research Internship Program (UTRIP) is a short-term internship program for students majoring in natural science and other relevant fields. The program will provide students with an opportunity to gain the experience of
"real graduate-school life" or "research-centered life". UTRIP is a gateway to experience academic life at UTokyo and develop skills needed for pursuing an advanced degree in the future. The program will be an excellent occasion for students to test their aptitude for rigorous graduate study in the natural sciences.

This April, 2021, we will launch the UTRIP Online as a pilot program looking ahead to the transition from the "With-Corona" era, to the "Post-Corona" era.

Participating students will closely work with leading researchers of the Graduate School of Science (GSS) at UTokyo online. Cutting edge experiments will be held remotely and interactive discussions are planned, which will offer you an outstanding scientific research work experience. Following several report writing assignments regarding the respective experiments, participants will be required to make an oral presentation and submit a final report on the research project.
