Outline of Research Students

Following a screening procedure, some of those who wish to engage in specialized research in a particular study area are accepted for enrollment in the university as research students, with the understanding that such research activities would not interfere with their general educational studies. The main purpose of this is to allow students the opportunity to master knowledge and skills associated with their research under the instruction of their teachers, and achieve some tangible results from their research. Enrollment is in April (first semester start) or October (second semester start).
