IPBS is funded by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science. At Osaka University, IPBS is designated as one of the graduate programs affiliated with the Institute of Academic Initiatives. About 10~20 students are accepted each year from 12 departments at Osaka University and from abroad.

From the second year, the program is run in English.
Our two forms of admission are:

  1. by recommendation from one of the designated partner institutions overseas (4 year program, second-year entry)
  2. from a general applicant pool (5 year program)

It is expected that applicants for general admission have Japanese language skills (necessary for the first year curriculum).
