raduate students enroll in either the MSc or PhD course with one of the existing sections at Kyoto University’s Primate Research Institute (PRI), or alternatively at Kyoto University’s Wildlife Research Center (WRC). Both degrees offered are research-focused, but Master’s students are also required to complete a set of courses and training programs provided by either PRI or WRC. Students who have successfully completed their Master’s degrees typically progress to the PhD program.
An English language entrance examination to both MSc and PhD was established in August 2010.
Graduate students who enter the program will belong to one of the existing sections at PRI or WRC. MSc students have to take a series of classes in Primatology from April to June, but some of the classes are not taught in English but slides and supplementary information in English are available.
A special workshop for international and Japanese students will be managed by the Center for International Collaboration and Advanced Studies in Primatology (CICASP), which was founded in April 2009.
