Future Global Leadership at Tohoku University:
International degree courses taught in English
Tohoku University has practiced its core principles of "Research First" "Open Doors," and "Practice-Oriented Research and Education" since its founding in 1907. With its commitment to world-class research and lush campuses in the city of Sendai, Tohoku University is an ideal place for international students wishing to study in Japan.
Tohoku University's Future Global Leadership Program (FGL) offers three outstanding undergraduate degree courses, taught completely in English: Advanced Molecular Chemistry, Applied Marine Biology, and International Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. All three courses provide students with both a solid foundation in the fundamentals of their chosen fields and exposure to the very latest cutting-edge research.
