How to apply?

First step: Identify your Research Topic and Keio co-supervisor

Before starting the JEMARO Master Programme, students will have to choose their Research Topic they will work on for the 2 years within the so-called Research Track. Their research will be jointly supervised by a European and a Japanese professor over the 2-year programme.

When applying, students will be asked to rank their 3 chosen Research Topics (control-mechatronics, robotics-human interface and signal processing-biological information) according to their preferences (developed in the cover letter) together with a ranking of the corresponding Keio co-supervisor. 

For details, see list of Keio Professors and Research Topics here (page down to the staff section).

 

Second step: Prepare the required documents

The following documents must be uploaded on the online application platform (as PDF files):

  • CV
  • First pages of passport or identity card indicating the nationality
  • Academic degree and transcripts of all university studies with translation into English, i.e. Bachelor's, Master's or equivalent. All the documents must be grouped into a single file. If the degree is due to be obtained after the deadline, a certificate from the institution indicating the situation of the student and the expected date of graduation must be provided
  • Cover letter (download PDF template)
  • Recognized International English Test Certificate, not older than 3 years: TOEFL (CBT 220, PBT 550, IBT 80), Cambridge Advanced English Test (B or higher), IELTS (6.5 or higher), TOEIC (800). No other test is recognized. This document is not required if the language of instruction of your studies is English. The fact must be certified by an official document or letter from the University. In that case, submitting an English Test Certificate is not compulsory, but can add value to your application. NB: the GRE code is provided for students who have GRE results and want to submit them. Note that the GRE is NOT compulsory, nor can it replace the English Test Certificate.
  • Names and recommendation letters from 2 persons (professors, department heads, tutors, studies directors) who are able to comment on your qualifications for graduate studies. The recommendation letters will have to be uploaded on the application website by the referent persons themselves (procedure detailed during the application procedure).
  • Proof of residence:  the place of residence is verified on the basis of provision of the documents listed on the PRADO website or on the basis of one of the following documents:
    • a residence certificate issued in accordance with the candidate's municipality normal registration rules
    • a certificate from the candidate's place of work, study or training issued by the employer or institution in question
Important: The place of residence certificate must have been issued within 12 months before the submission deadline of applying for an Erasmus+ EMJMD student scholarship.
