Co-Supervision program

In the doctoral course, students have the opportunity to receive research guidance and to have their doctoral thesis co-supervised by prominent overseas researchers who are appointed as “Distinguished Visiting Professors” at Kyoto University.

Research guidance is conducted at either Kyoto University or at the overseas institution where the co-supervisor is affiliated to, as well as via e-mail or video conference system.

As a rule, the co-supervisor also participates in the doctoral thesis defense committee together with Kyoto University faculty members.
