Students enrolled as regular students who have “College Student” status of residence, or those who entered the University by passing an entrance examination for international students, and plan to submit a graduation thesis for a bachelor’s, master’s or doctorate degree, are eligible for a tutorial service in Japanese for writing their thesis, provided their supervising professors deem it necessary. Through this program, students can receive thesis tutoring in their nonnative language from a Japanese student pre-approved by the supervising professor during the school year in which the thesis is to be submitted. Students preparing a thesis in their native language are excluded from this program. The supervising professors approve the appointment of the tutors, who as a general rule, have acquired a master’s degree or have commensurate academic ability. They are not limited to students in the University’s graduate schools. The tutoring schedule is typically two hours per week for a six-month period during the academic year in which the thesis is to be submitted. Students wishing to work with a thesis tutor are encouraged to make this request at the Center for International Studies, on either campus.
