Due to the limited resources in our lab,
there is no position available for foreign Research Student (before MSc)
and foreign MSc Course Student
for the school year 2017/2018.
Only a PhD Course position (or a RS after MSc)
is available at the moment.
A MSc student candidate for the Data Sciences Program (DSP)
could be accepted if he/she has got a conference/journal paper published already.
Please see the following sites for information about admission and scholarships. Don't miss the due dates!

Prof. Kobayashi and I have separate research groups,
although we share the same lab.
You should contact me directly
if you are interested in my research topics.
Some foreign students expect to earn
living expenses while they are in Japan.
Since the studies at Graduate School are not so easy,
spending a long time for part-time jobs
for living/tuition should be avoided.
