Educational Goal and Three Policies of the Biology Program

Educational Goal

Our Educational Philosophy focuses on the following two points.

(1) develop human resources who have a broad knowledge in biology and technology application skills and who will be able to play a key role in a wide range of fields, and
(2) nurture human resources who will contribute, in local and international communities, to the development of science and technology.

In order to put this Philosophy into practice, we aim to produce, through our education and research, professionals who commit to our Educational Philosophy.

The General Selection (oral examination) will conduct an interview including oral examination. Also to be taken into account is the grade achieved at the school the applicant has graduated from and research plan.

The General Selection (written examination) will conduct an examination on the specialized subject and a foreign language (English), and an interview.

The Special Admissions in Other Fields will evaluate applicants’ ability/aptitude/motivation all of which are necessary to achieve the status of human resource described in our Educational Goals through a presentation including an oral examination. Also to be taken into account is the grade achieved at the school the applicant has graduated from and the Statement of Reasons for Applying. An applicants’ English ability will also be tested.

The Special Selection for Those in Employment will examine applicants’ research plans and conduct an interview including oral examination.
