Education Curriculum

Overseas English Training I or II

D1 doctoral students who demonstrate adequate English proficiency have the chance to attend an exchange program at UC Davis, where they will experience a leading American research environment. Through this experience, the students improve their ability to communicate in English to a global audience, a key requirement for engaging in research activities in the area of biological science research.

The students spend their time in the host laboratory at UC Davis’ College of Biological Sciences for around four weeks. During this time, they perform experiments and present and discuss their results with students and faculty. They also attend an English program at UC Davis Extension, in which they further develop their English and communication skills.

Because this is a homestay program (students stay with a host family in Davis), the students immerse themselves in the local culture and experience real, everyday English communication firsthand.

※From FY2018, Overseas English Training I or II includes Overseas Internship.
