(Important notice) For all applicants : In the e-mail for contact, please (1) mention the specific reasons why you selected our laboratory, not others, and (2) specify the details of the research topic you’d like to study in our laboratory, if possible, by citing our published papers.

For applicants to Japanese Government-funded international students

The MEXT scholarship, a Japanese Government-funded scholarship for international students, is generally for graduate levels. In particular, the candidates graduated in the universities enrolled in the list of International Agreements on Academic Exchange with Tottori University are welcome.
