(6) If a grantee desires to step up to a regular course for a degree from a Research Student non-degree course, in principle, he/she must move on to the graduate school of the university at which he/she is studying as Research Student. If proceeding to the graduate school is deemed to be inappropriate given the grantee's major field or ability, he/she may be allowed to transfer to another graduate school provided that he/she is admitted to enroll in.
Straight out of the application guidlines.
Wow, thanks for your reply. It's strange, but that isn't included in the guidelines on the embassy website in my country!
So, by the looks of things, it would be possible to go into a different course other than the one listed on my application, provided it's in the same department. I imagine a lot of it depends on my supervisor's approval and permission.
