Accepted Alternative for the Non-Japanese Students

Unfortunately for non-Japanese students whose mother tongue is not Japanese, the lectures are offered in Japanese. However, all lecturers would show lecture slides in English, so you might be able to understand some key points in the lectures. We recommend you to attend these lectures to acquire knowledge of space research and exploration, even if you could not well understand what lecturers discuss.
Since the lectures are offered in Japanese, talking video lectures in English is accepted as an alternative for the non-Japanese students to take a credit for "Overview of Space Exploration and Research" in this Leading Program (LGS-Frontier). Contents of the video lectures are based on intensive lectures held in Feb. 2013. To apply for this alternative, contact the Student Affairs Office (lgs-edu[at]frontier.phys.nagoya-u.ac.jp).

--- Note. ---
Any of the video lectures is not accepted as a class offered among "Graduate School of Science: A Classes" and "Graduate School of Engineering: Applied engineering courses."
