How to Apply

The International Graduate Program in our graduate school follows a four-quarter system with Autumn, Winter, Spring and Summer terms.
Master’s course begins in the autumn term starting in October (October Entry).
(Note that the Japanese taught standard course begins in the spring term (April Entry))
Doctoral course begins in either the autumn term (October Entry) or the spring term (April Entry).

You can apply as a self-funded student or for a scholarship to study in our graduate school. If you want to apply for the Japanese Government Scholarship, MEXT (Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology) scholarship, there are two ways: MEXT (embassy recommended) and MEXT (university selection). MEXT (embassy recommended) is available for Master’s and PhD programs, and the application should be submitted through your local Japanese embassy or consulate. MEXT (university selection), for which we have eight places available, is only for the PhD program in our graduate school, and the application should be submitted directly to us. The Faculty of Agriculture also offers up to two scholarships for the PhD program that are available for all non-Japanese nationals, even for those who live in Japan. For the Master’s program, we have ADB-JSP scholarships for those who are nationals of ADB borrowing member countries and meet all the eligibility conditions. Another scholarship option for the Master’s program is a JDS scholarship. Currently, we accept JDS scholars from Viet Nam, Myanmar, Laos, and Ghana. Note that the application/selection schedules are different for each scholarship.
