Double Degree Program (for students)


With the rapid progression of globalization, researchers able to guide international collaborative research bringing together human resources and emerging technologies to tackle the issues facing humankind regardless of borders, are being called for. The double degree program is designed to systematically develop human resources with an emphasis on the ability to conduct international joint research and to enhance international collaborative skills through education and research collaboration with international partner institutions.
In the double degree program, students are enrolled at NAIST and one of our partner institutions, and upon completing the program, following research guidance from both institutions' faculty, receive degrees from both institutions. Currently, NAIST offers doctoral course double degree programs with 7 international partner institutions and master's course double degree program with 1 international partner institution. All participating students must spend at least one academic year at each institution receiving research guidance in order to complete the program. Participation in the double degree program is limited and acceptance is in the beginning of the fall or spring semesters at NAIST.

  • Being enrolled as a student at NAIST
  • Being affiliated to a division that has implemented the double degree program
  • Being able to spend at least one year abroad receiving research guidance at the partner institution
