For applicants
to this program

  • Requirements for application

    All applicants are required to belong to either the Master course or the Ph.D. course at the Graduate School of Life Sciences or the Graduate School of Medicine in Tohoku University. Those who wish to participate in the Neuro Global program and are currently enrolled in the Master course are expected to acquire the designated credits and have the plan to go on to the Ph.D. course upon completion of the Master course. Those newly enrolled in the Ph.D. course at either Graduate Schools are also eligible to apply to the Neuro Global program.
  • The number to be admitted

    About ten students
  • Selection Method

    Neuro Global program participants are selected by résumé screening and an interview. First year students enrolled in the Master course at the Graduate School of Life Sciences or the Graduate School of Medicine are eligible to apply. The applicants are required to pass this Qualifying Exam 0 (QE0) to participate in the Neuro Global program.

    * Students who graduated from a six-year curriculum university (for example, the Department of Medicine or the Department of Pharmacy) will likely get enrolled in the Ph.D. course directly without completion of the Master course. Those who newly enrolled in the Ph.D. course of either Graduate Schools are also eligible to apply to the Neuro Global program. They will need to pass the QE0 during their first year of the Ph.D. course to participate in the Neuro Global program.

At the explanatory meeting of the Graduate School of Life Sciences or the Graduate School of Medicine, an overview of the Tohoku University Neuro Global Program will be introduced.
