The RIMS offers graduate-level education programs as a department of the division of Mathematics and Mathematical Sciences in the Graduate School of Science, Kyoto University and, as such, is governed by the rules of the School as to the acceptance of students, course requirements and degrees. These programs lead to the degrees of Master of Science and Doctor of Science in the field of mathematical sciences.
Admission decisions for the Master's Program are based on written and oral examinations held in August, and the application deadline is early in July.
Admission decisions for the Doctoral Program are based on oral examinations about the applicants' research achievements, especially their master's theses. The examination takes place in January or February, and the application deadline is in the middle of January.
