Message from the President on
Graduate Institute for Advanced Studies

Graduate Institute for Advanced Studies

The Graduate University for Advanced Studies, SOKENDAI is a graduate university based on world class research institutions such as inter-university research institutes.

We have been fostering highly specialized Ph.D.s by using the world's most cutting-edge research centers as sites for education.

On the other hand, in order to develop human resources for researchers who can tackle complex and interdisciplinary issues based on the ever-changing trends in academic fields and the demands of society, it is necessary to build a system that can flexibly utilize highly specialized educational resources across disciplines.

Therefore, we have started to review our existing education system and consider transitioning to a 20-program system.

We aim to foster the next generation of researchers who will create new horizons beyond their fields of expertise.
