UTSIP Online Intensive 2021 (UTSIP Kashiwa 2021 )- For Undergraduate Students from The University of Tokyo, Komaba – College of Arts and Sciences

The University of Tokyo Summer Internship Program in Kashiwa, initially only for undergraduate students from overseas universities, has been accepting applications from undergraduate students of the College of Arts and Sciences, the University of Tokyo since 2016.
*Due to the ongoing pandemic, UTSIP Kashiwa 2021 will not be carried out in its original face-to-face structure. Instead, we have decided to hold UTSIP Online Intensive 2021. It will be held online with the program period shortened and the contents modified.

UTSIP Online Intensive 2021

offers lectures from world-leading researchers at GSFS.
will be a three-week summer program for academically motivated undergraduate students.
provides various activities online in which students can interact virtually with participants from other laboratories.

All participants will be assigned to a laboratory in which he/she is interested to work in and will conduct a research project under the guidance of a faculty member or senior graduate students. Each laboratory has at least one (1) UTSIP participant from an overseas university.
