The research themes/topics will be carried out by AUN/SEED-Net students under joint supervision of Host Institutions (HIs) and Japanese Supporting Universities (JSUs). During the period of scholarship, students in the Doctoral Degree Sandwich Program and Integrated Graduate Program can visit their JSU’s co-advisors to receive thesis research supervision.
