Admission

Education System for International Students

With the objective of raising talents that match our educational goals, Osaka University accepts a wide variety of students who have acquired well-grounded fundamental knowledge and adequate specialized knowledge during their Bachelor's degree, Master's degree, or Professional degree, are keen to study, and have a strong motivation to independently discover and investigate research themes.

For the purpose of selecting the appropriate students, each graduate school and department will assess applicants based on their enrollment requirements. In particular, international applicants may choose between these two special selections for both the Master's (First Half of Doctoral Program) Degree and Doctoral Program.

You will need the permission of the faculty supervisor of the program that you intend to enroll to during the application stage for both selections, so please contact the faculty supervisor beforehand.
Please refer to the following introduction of professors for a list of faculty members.

Instead of these special selections, you may also choose to take the regular entrance examination together with Japanese applicants. In that case, you will not require permission from the faculty supervisor beforehand but it is still recommended that you contact the faculty supervisor beforehand. In addition, unlike the special selection, you may not be assigned to the research lab that you selected as your first choice.

Master's Degree (First Half of Doctoral Program)
