UTRIP is a summer internship program organized by the Graduate School of Science at the University of Tokyo, which invites undergraduate students from all around the world with keen interests in pursuing an M.S. or Ph.D. degree in the future, to experience the forefront of research at a world-leading laboratory. It is open to students in the second or a later year of undergraduate studies at a university outside of Japan, who major in a natural science or related field.
Selected participants will work closely with leading researchers at the laboratory of their own choice in the five departments at the Graduate School of Science: Physics, Astronomy, Earth and Planetary Science, Chemistry, and Biological Sciences. The program also incorporates a short Japanese language course, an excursion outside of Tokyo, a Japanese culture workshop, and a few social events, to enhance the participants’ understanding of Japan and rapport with current students at UTokyo.
Students can choose up to two professors from the list of UTRIP hosting professors upon application, and they will be assigned to one of them once selected. The hosting laboratories change every year.
