Research Student

Enrolling as a Research Student in the 2nd semester, 2022

Enrolling as a Research Student in the 2nd semester, 2022

Overview of the Policy for Research Students

The policy for research students of the Graduate School of Design of Kyushu University is intended to support researchers from home and abroad under the guidance of a supervising instructor for six months or one year by offering research facilities and equipment in the university, so that the initial research plan submitted by the students themselves will be fulfilled. The instructor undertakes the task of supervising research students who aim to pursue studies in the design engineering domains based on the school’s educational philosophy.

Since the research students enroll in the graduate school with the aim of pursuing their own specific studies, they are basically not allowed to audit classes (lectures) for undergraduate or graduate course students. Furthermore, since the policy is not meant to aim at their acquisition of an academic degree, the university does not grant a degree for their research results after completing the research period.

Those who wish to obtain a degree must take the admissions examination of the School of Design or the Graduate School of Design, enroll as a regular student, and complete the required courses.
Those who wish to attend classes must enter the university either as a regular student or a non-degree student, and follow the designated procedures, including signing up for courses.

Qualifications for applicants

Those who are eligible to apply for research student status must fall under one of the following items.

(1)         Those who have graduated from a university (excluding junior college) and have been awarded a bachelor’s degree or expect to be awarded a bachelor’s degree before enrollment.
(2)         Those who have been recognized by the Graduate School as having academic abilities equivalent or superior to those listed in the preceding item.

 For further information, please refer to the attached file below.
