We have established an International Physics Course (IPC) at the Department of Physics, the Graduate School of Science, Osaka University. In this course, we provide graduate students with an education and research program conducted in English. The education is designed so that a student can work as an active member of international collaborations in theory or experiment, for example, with large scale facilities. Osaka University is unique in that we have our own facilities including a high-power laser and a high-energy accelerator. Students interested in condensed matter physics and other fields of physics are also encouraged to join the IPC course. We welcome students from abroad to join us at Osaka University.
We have 34 groups led by full professors covering research in particle and nuclear physics, astrophysics, plasma physics, condensed matter, statistical and inter-disciplinary physics. Details of the groups and faculties are shown at the URL on the right. Feel free to contact these faculties directly to ask any kind of questions. The IPC was created as a part of the graduate program in the Physics Department. Students will be physics students, and will receive a Master of Science or Ph.D. degree from the Department of Physics, Graduate School of Science.
The IPC is one of four educational courses taught in English at Osaka University and is one of the projects for the Establishment of Core Universities for Internationalization（Global 30）launched by our ministry MEXT.
