The University of Tokyo Research Internship Program (UTRIP) provides students with an opportunity to gain the experience of “real graduate-school life” or “research-centered life.”

UTRIP is a gateway to experience academic life at UTokyo and develop skills needed for pursuing an advanced degree in the future. The program will be an excellent occasion for students to test their aptitude for rigorous graduate study in the natural sciences.

In April, 2021, we launched UTRIP Online as a pilot program looking ahead to the transition from the “With-Corona” era, to the “Post-Corona” era.

Participants will work closely with leading researchers of the Graduate School of Science (GSS) in UTokyo online. Cutting edge experiments will be conducted remotely and lively discussions will be held among the participants, UTokyo students, and faculty members, which offers the participants an outstanding scientific research work experience.

Following several report writing assignments regarding the respective experiments, participants made oral presentations online and submitted final reports on their respective research projects.

There are three program options which applicants can participate in: Physics, Earth and Planetary Science, or Chemistry. For more program specific information, such as program dates and research contents, click here.

Tuition is free for this internship program, and participants who successfully complete the program will be awarded a certificate from the school.
