CICASP also assists as an international access point for the following programs and opportunities.
Students enrolled in our course will also have the opportunity of applying to the Leading Graduate Program in Primatology and Wildlife Science (PWS) offered by Kyoto University. This program aims to extend students' skill sets beyond basic research and thereby produce professionals in conservation, welfare, and outreach development.
To achieve this goal, the PWS Program emphasizes education in wildlife conservation, animal welfare, and skills for outreach programs. In addition to offering various extra educational components, inclusive of field- and laboratory-based training practicums, students enrolled in the PWS program may benefit from limited funds for travel- and research-related expenses.
For more information on the program, please visit the PWS website.

There is growing international demand for access to Kyoto University's primatology and wildlife programs, its on- and off-site facilities and resources, and the experience and expertise of its faculty. This internship program aims to allow students at foreign institutions, at all stages of their careers, who are interested in the primatological and other wildlife sciences the opportunity to receive training and conduct research with us.
The program, launched 1 April 2015, is administered by CICASP and integrated with relevant departments. Specific activities will be determined by the faculty member(s) involved with each student, CICASP, as well as the students' institutions where appropriate. Since its inaugural year, this program has received more than 20 internship students per annum (pandemic era excuded) from diverse cultural and academic backgrounds, and we expect its popularity to continue. To apply for this program, visit the website and follow the instructions therein!
Note that, with the restructuring of the former Primate Research Institute, details of the internship program and how it may be affected are forthcoming. Please contact CICASP or your prospective internship supervisor for details.
