Upon application acceptance

1. JSPS gives the teacher the Fellow's contact information. Planning for the lecture session is carried out directly with the faculty.

* Tips for Success *

  • Using a lot of figures, photos, and Japanese key words in your materials and slides will help to improve the students’ understanding of your lecture. Utilizing experiments, specimens, models or other observational devices will help perk the students’curiosity.
  • If you are accompanied by your colleague, it is good to discuss the content of the lecture and its procedure with him/her beforehand, as well as with the teacher of the school.
  • In giving your lecture, many past fellows advise you to use easy words and short sentences, and the most important thing is to speak SLOWLY.
