5.2. Admissions and Registration

The OIST Graduate University aims to train researchers who will play important roles in the international scientific community at leading scientific institutions in the public and private sectors. Accordingly, recruitment focuses on attracting outstanding students. Here “outstanding” means students who are highly motivated by the excitement and potential of the cutting edge research that is possible at OIST, who have the curiosity and academic ability needed to excel in their chosen areas of study, and who have the capacity for independent research and original thinking.

The OIST Graduate Program is conducted in English, therefore our students also require proficiency in oral and written communication skills in English for advanced study in science.
