Thank you for your interest in graduate studies at Univesity of Tsukuba.
Mathematics Program at the Graduate School of Pure and Applied Sciences is to be restructured to Master’s/Doctoral Programs in Mathematics, the Degree Programs in Pure and Applied Sciences from April 2020.
Several recent developments in mathematics have contributed greatly to advances in the natural sciences. Research in this program covers the five main fields of pure and applied mathematics: (1) algebra, (2) geometry, (3) analysis, (4) information science, and (5) mathematical science (applied mathematics).
Graduate students in this program will select one research project in modern mathematics and conduct research under the supervision of one of the faculty advisors.
Students will learn mathematics through advanced lectures and seminars given by faculty advisors. They will be challenged with fundamental general problems as well as more focused, specific problems and become able to produce high-level research findings on pure and applied mathematics.
・The English proficiency test
Starting with the examination for 2021 Graduate Admission, the English proficiency of applicants will be evaluated with an official score of TOEIC, TOEFL, or IELTS (Academic Module). The test score must be submitted at the time of application.
For 2021 GraduateAdmission only (conducted in the 2020 academic year), an English written test conducted by the university on the day of the entrance examination may be used instead ofthe TOEIC, TOEFL, or IELTS scores.
Applicants are required to submit anoriginal score document, of a type listed below, from a TOEIC/TOEFL/IELTS examination taken after June, 2018. A photocopy of the original or a PDF copy downloaded from the test web site will NOT be accepted.
TOEFL：Examinee Score Report or Test Taker Score Report
TOEIC：Official Score Certificate/Report (only Listening & Reading Testis valid)
IELTS：Test Report Form (Academic Module)"
Application form for the 2021 Graduate Admission will be released by the end of April, 2020.
・Archive of Past Entrance Exams

Financial support for Ph.D. students (Doctoral course)
support for Ph.D. candidates to promote their research activities. All
Ph.D. candidates, except those listed below, will be hired as research
assistants (RAs) and the support will be paid as the remuneration.
For the fiscal year 2019, the RA remuneration will equal 100% of the
tuition fee. Students who have a full or half tuition fee exemption are
supported at the same level as non-exempt students. Students who
enroll as Ph.D. candidates for more than 3 years are also eligible for
support, but the level of support will be reduced.
The following students are not eligible for this support:
(1) JSPS Research Fellows,
(2) Japanese Government (MEXT) Scholarship Students,
(3) Students who are employed as RAs (or equivalent) in other
institutions or are financed by external funding,
(4) Students with a certain amount of income as employees/employers,
(5) Students taking a leave of absence from the university
(6) Students receiving a benefit type scholarship of 140,000 yen / month
