Division of International Joint Research
This division offers the following educational programs.
Students are dispatched on internships to international organizations or overseas education and research institutions, where they receive a training in communication skills in English or other languages used in the United States and Europe.
- International Research-Group Program for Graduate Students
International joint research conducted by groups of Kyoto University graduate students from a range of years and across departments with other graduate students and young researchers from overseas partner universities. Each group proposes large cross-disciplinary research themes, into which students then fit their own smaller research topics. They then conduct their research from comparative perspectives. The experience of organizing and holding workshops in Japan and abroad allows students to develop high-level communication skills. Research findings are published, with respect being given to students’ initiative, and help is provided by COSER and Kyoto University faculty members who serve as advisors in the publication process.
