About the Department of Integrated Biosciences Kemigawa Seminar (Enrollment Guidance)

At the Department of Integrated Biosciences, the Kemigawa Seminar (which comes in set with orientation for new students) is held overnight at the University of Tokyo Kemigawa Seminar House. There are two purposes for this Kemigawa Seminar. The first is to explain about the curriculum of the Department of Integrated Biosciences, the facilities of Kashiwa Campus, and the research life to help new students start their campus life comfortably and safely. We also invite senior students who have had success with their doctor/master thesis research and provide an opportunity to hear useful advice about the secrets to research life. The second purpose is to encourage making connections among the new students or between the faculty members and new students, through spending time together at this two-day camp. For these purposes, we organize sessions where students introduce themselves and also have a panel discussion where each student presents their goals at the Department of Integrated Biosciences, in order to get to know each other better.

There are various sports facilities next to the Seminar House, and a large part of the afternoon on the second day is dedicated to recreational activities so you can make friends through playing tennis, soccer, softball, volleyball, badminton, table tennis, etc. Kemigawa Seminar, apart from its educational facilities and state-of-the-art equipment, is a curriculum unique to the Department of Integrated Biosciences that emphasizes on the bonds/connections between people.

Note that the Kemigawa Seminar is compulsory as it is a part of the "Research Project Planning" course.
