Introduction to Graduate School policies
The following Graduate School policies detail official and enforceable policies in relation to student admissions, the academic programs of OIST, student support measures, and other duties fulfilled by the Graduate School.
Graduate School policies supplement, and do not in any way supersede, the University Rules and the University’s Policies, Rules and Procedures (PRP). If any discrepancy is found, the University Rules and the University’s PRP take precedent.
OIST Graduate School policies form a complete set of OIST educational program requirements. Only in extraordinary circumstances are exceptional amendments made during the academic year.
Where amendments are made to graduation requirements in subsequent academic years, students may opt to update to these new graduation requirements in writing, but must do so in entirety, and with no option to revert to former academic year iterations.
This Introduction to Graduate School policies shall come into force from September 1, 2020.
This revised Introduction to Graduate School policies shall come into force from May 1, 2023.
