These students are exempted from paying fees for application, admission, and tuition (more information about MEXT scholarship can be found here).

They may apply for other scholarships after successful admission.

Recipients of GSEP will be belong to the Department of Transdisciplinary Science and Engineering which includes science, engineering, and management courses. GSEP is a transdisciplinary degree program not limited to any specific science or engineering field. Transdisciplinary knowledge is essential for scientists and engineers to solve real-world global problems, as well as acquire intercultural leadership skills and a future vision. Many of the core courses will be team taught in project-based learning or hands-on formats covering various fields of science and engineering. Students can choose course topics and acquire advanced knowledge.
