Frequently Asked Questions
Q: I registered my application for the program. What's next?
A: The number of participants for this program is limited to 250 students. All successful applicants will be notified whether they will be eligible to participate in the program. Those who are eligible will receive an instruction on how to log-in to the program. Our committee will make decisions on applicants on a rolling basis. We expect to have all the applicants notified by Sept 18, 2021. Please check your “junk”mail folder.
If you wish to attend the program, do not attempt to become a member until you receive a mail to do so. If you try to add to be a member, then your email address will be registered, but you will not get approval to participate in the program. This is because we cannot override your email address in the system if you were approved to participate at later date.
Please note that this is an educational program designed for students who are enrolled in College/University with our partner universities overseas. Since we do not have technical capability to deliver the program with more than 250 participants, limited space might be available for other participants.
Q: Are all the talks "live" online sessions?
A: No, the Research Themes topics are on-demand videos and leaning materials available for you to watch as many as you like at your own pace during the program period. However, you can also register to attend live Research Themes Discussion Workshops for each of the topics, which are scheduled on specific dates indicated. Special seminars/workshops and Student Social/Culture hour events will also be live sessions.
Q: I missed some live sessions. Will it be a recorded session be available at a later date?
A: We will make every effort to record the sessions for you to view during the program duration. However, videos may not be available due to technical difficulties. Some sessions, such as the Student Social Culture Hour session, will not be recorded to protect participants’ privacy.
Q: How much does it cost to attend the program?
A: The program is free. The program is sponsored by Japan Science Technology (JST) and the Faculty of Medicine, University of Tsukuba.
