Admission policy

The educational philosophy of the Graduate School of Agriculture is to train students to become technical experts and researchers who will contribute to building a sustainable society in symbiosis with the natural environment by developing bio-production technology and ensuring a stable supply of safe and secure food; by elucidating bioscience and using bioresources; and by helping to resolve the problems of creating, rehabilitating, preserving, managing, and using biological environments.

Consequently, our admission policy is to attract students with expertise gained in the undergraduate program and who are passionate about helping to resolve the problems related to food, life, and the environment. We also welcome working professionals and international students who are strongly motivated to relearn and master cutting-edge technologies.

To fulfil our philosophy, the Graduate School of Agriculture has established three departments: Food Production Science; Bioscience; and Science and Technology for Biological Resources and Environment. We also provide special courses for working professionals and for international students from Asia, Africa, and the Pacific Rim.
