The University of Tokyo, “Todai”
The study exchange will normally allow up to four graduate students from each institution to enroll in courses at the partner institution for one semester, or two graduate students from each institution to study at the partner campus for one academic year, under the general supervision of a member or members of faculty of the hosting department. The exchange will initially be limited to Princeton students joining the graduate-level Todai courses taught in English or those who can meet Todai’s standard Japanese language requirements for those programs where instruction is in Japanese, and to Todai students who can meet Princeton’s English language requirements for international graduate students in any discipline.
There will be no tuition or fee exchange under this agreement. Princeton students remain on their regular University support and Todai students do not receive funding from Princeton. Students may apply for campus housing but it cannot be guaranteed.
Students must be nominated by their home institution by April 1st for the following fall semester and by October 1st for the spring semester and complete applications with all supporting documents must be received by Princeton’s Graduate School no less than three months prior to the intended start date.
Nominees must complete the non-degree application, include a clear plan of proposed study and identify a primary advisor with whom they will work while visiting. The host advisor must indicate consent to advise the student while in Todai or Princeton. Admission is contingent upon final approval by the host institution.
