'Tutoring' system is a system that the designated tutor provides support to international students whenever their supervisor deems it necessary. In general, the system is applicable to undergraduate students during their first two years in Japan, and graduate students and certain research students during their first year. Tutors are generally graduate students selected from the graduate school to which the international student belongs.
Whether the advice/assistance given by the tutors will focus on research or daily life will depend on the individual needs of the international student. It is recommended, therefore, that students relay their concerns to their academic supervisor to receive the accurate support. Further details are available at the faculty/graduate school offices where the international student belongs.
