Learning at the University of Toyama

In principle, this university is organized by faculty for education and research, but each faculty is further divided into departments for each specialized academic field.
For those who wish to pursue further advanced education and research after completing the faculties, we have the graduate schools.

Undergraduate Students

Four years of study is required to complete the undergraduate program (six years for the Department of Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, and the Department of Pharmacy, Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences.) Classes on Japanese language and Japanese culture are offered during this period.

Graduate Students

For those who wish to pursue further advanced education and research after completing the faculties, we have the graduate schools.
Two years of study is required to complete the master’s program, and three or four years (depending on the major) is required to complete the doctoral program.

Others

1) Research Students

Those who are conducting research on a particular research topic may be admitted as a research student for a period of one year or less.
In principle, admission is at the beginning of each school year, but may be permitted during the year under special circumstances.

2) Subject-based Enrollment Students

We have a subject-based enrollment student system which allows students to enroll in one or more specific class subjects.
Enrollment is at the beginning of each semester.

Instructors

Instructors are available in each faculty and graduate school to provide international students with instruction and advice on academic issues, career issues and other personal matters.
International students are encouraged to keep in touch with their instructors proactively and regularly.

Tutors

TutorsTutors provide individual assistance to international students on their academic and research matters to improve the effectiveness of their study. Tutors are selected by instructors among students who study the same subject area as the international student. Tutors are assigned to students for a period of two years from their first arrival in Japan for undergraduate students, and one year for graduate students.
