The French-Japanese IMaC-Okayama Programme
- Course duration: Up to eight months
- Language of instruction: English
- Course location: Japan
Certification: Certificate of completion
The IMaC-Okayama is an international study programme organised by Okayama University’s Graduate School of Natural Science and Technology in close collaboration with Sorbonne University. It provides a high-level graduate training to Sorbonne University’s students who are already enrolled in one of our master’s programmes. Its aim is to encourage them to learn and understand interdisciplinary science in an international environment during their first year of master’s.
The programme has been structured to be highly flexible, specifically for students, as they can select classes and combine their study placement with a research internship (only if their training requires and/or allows it). The programme is taught in English and is structured around lectures, tutoring sessions and group-work.
Lectures start from generalities in fundamental natural science and technology, become gradually more specific and finally reach the advanced research subjects covered by the professors.
Planned by professors and conducted as face-to-face seminars or group seminars with the professor’s research group.
Task-solving seminars with several students (including Japanese students) and contains literature searching, discussion and presentation.
Students with strong motivations to deepen research approaches can combine their study placement with a research internship in one of the laboratories of Okayama University.
A special procedure applies and should be conducted prior to applying for the IMaC-Okayama programme:
