Continuing Education

The Graduate School of Environment and Information Sciences aims to provide continuing education and retraining for people in the workforce, and in doing so to develop greater interaction between the university and industry and contribute to the development of new learning and technologies.

As one aspect of this continuing education system, we have introduced the Special Selection for Working Students scheme, which allows working students to apply for admission by way of an oral exam and review of submitted application documents, without having to sit for a written exam.

Other measures aimed at facilitating working student studies include the 'Special Learning Provision' which enables working students to attend night classes, and the 'Long-Term Enrollment' system providing reasonable tuition fees for working students who wish to extend the term of their study.

Enrollment Provision

Some lecture subjects in each course (in each department) can be taken at night. Consideration is also given to the times at which the seminars, workshops and laboratory work are held, upon consultation with academic advisors.

Night lecture times

Period Duration
5th 4:15 p.m. - 5:45 p.m.
6th 5:50 p.m. - 7:20 p.m.
7th 7:25 p.m. - 8:55 p.m.

Long-Term Enrollment System

Long-term students are those who, due to their employment or other circumstances, are allowed to complete their studies over a prescribed period which exceeds the standard study period (i.e. 2 years for the Master's Program and 3 years for the Doctoral Program).

Unlike general students, persons who are recognized as Long-Term Enrollment students can undertake their studies in the graduate school program for the same tuition fees required for the standard study period regardless of the duration of their study period (i.e. 2-4 years for the Master's Program and 3-6 years for the Doctoral Program).
