Become a Highly Qualified Professional in the Fields of Education, Social Work and Child Care through Positive Research

The Graduate School of Tokyo University of Social Welfare conducts the Evidence Based Practice (EBP) as the core of the integration of theory and practice, and provides students with classes to acquire the ability to solve actual problems as practical researchers after graduation. We support the students who want to become professionals in the fields of social work, education and child care in learning the methods of positive research and practice.

We also have the Research Students Program for international students. This program is intended for those students who want to conduct research in the fields of social work, or early childhood care and education.

The program also helps students study Japanese language and culture as needed for their research. It is expected that a student who has completed the program would enter the Graduate School of Tokyo University of Social Welfare as regular students. Typically, the program lasts one year.

However, students who have earned required credits and demonstrated acceptable academic standards may complete the program in six months. The maximum duration of the program is two years. Students who have earned the required number of credits and completed the program successfully are eligible to enter the Graduate School of Tokyo University of Social Welfare as regular students.

(Examinations will be held, but an internal recommendation system is available.)
