In principle, when master’s course students finish their first semester of study at their respective department, they will have a chance to apply for a “WINGS” program if they wish to study continuously until doctoral studies. The applicable WINGS programs vary by the department you study at.

Once you are selected as a WINGS student, you will be able to receive a monthly stipend for the rest of your study period, which is about 4.5 years. If you complete all the requirements of the respective department as well as WINGS program’s, your Ph.D. Diploma will also show your successful completion of WINGS.

Only UTSIP alumni are able to apply for WINGS-PES when applying for an admission to GSFS. Please check the following WINGS-PES, Category 2 for details.
