Supporting International Students

Our graduate school has several unique educational systems to encourage and support international students.

Japanese language classes

In addition to regular classes, the GSB is offering international students intensive Japanese language classes (Beginner / Intermediate / Advanced). Each class has 8 lectures. Any international students may take these classes depending on their skill level. Kyoto University International Office also provides various Japanese classes throughout the year.



Each GSB student has one supervisor, and two sub-supervisors. You may ask sub-supervisors for comments and suggestions on your research project from different points of view, as well as for any counseling on your life in the GSB and Kyoto University.


Study tour for international students

The GSB is offering international students one-day tour to various places in Japan once a year.
Students can experience various Japanese cultures, arts and cuisines in the tour.
