The University of Tokyo has launched a great program that might be of interest to anyone who is an undergraduate student living abroad and wants to study in Tokyo.

The Global Science Course (GSC) is a new undergraduate 2 year-long transfer program for chemistry students. It was designed to enhance cross-cultural interactions among young minds from around the world coming together to learn chemistry. All GSC classes are conducted in English by world-leading professors who are pursuing cutting-edge research in the most advanced fields, while also focusing on the fostering of students who will lead the next generation in science communities.

By giving students the opportunity to study abroad in Tokyo, they will not only get the chance to make the most of our world renowned facilities but will also be able to experience Japanese lifestyle and culture first-hand. This is an invaluable opportunity for those looking to expand their worldviews and experience something unique during their time as an undergraduate student specializing in the sciences.

Furthermore, successful applicants to our program are rewarded with a generous scholarship. This includes 150,000 Japanese yen per month to aid in paying tuition fees and support living expenses. It additionally includes fully supported rent.

You can learn more about GSC through our website and our Facebook page:

The application deadline closes on April 8th, 2016!
