El convenio entre la UA y la universidad extranjera determina que el alumno no debe abonar la cuota de la institución extranjera, solo la de la Universidad Austral.

Los plazos de aplicación son:

  • Para el Semestre Enero-Julio: antes del 31 de agosto del año anterior.
  • Para Semestre Agosto-Noviembre: antes del 25 de febrero del mismo año.

How intense is the workload? 

We understand students are very busy with their studies and other activities at university; thus, the program is designed to not be time intensive. Students will need to be prepared to participate in courses twice a month for 3 hours (6 hours a month). For more information on the work itself, please refer to the “Deliverables” section of the program brochure. None of the deliverables require excessive length or time and thus the program is manageable alongside university classes.

Do we actually implement our business ideas and project models? 

It is not expected that students physically implement their ideas. Rather the objective of the program is to develop baseline competencies and skills associated with research and business development. It is possible to receive sponsorship of one’s project from potential stakeholders or investors, but this is not an expectation nor requirement of the program.

Do I need to study business to participate?

No. All students regardless of background or degree program are welcome to apply. The SEED Program values diversity and creative thinking from a wide range of perspectives. As long as you have interest in the Program Themes and business development, we encourage you to apply.

Do I get to select my research group?

Students are assigned to research groups based on the preferences you indicate on the application form. We will try our best to match you with your ideal focal area (please visit the SEED Program website for more information about each focal area), but it is a condition of your application that you hold interest in and be willing to work on all the focus areas, not just one. Please keep this in mind, as although the curriculum and program experiences are the same regardless of what study group you are assigned to, the topic of your research is assigned. Ultimately, the focal areas themselves are meant to be a lens through which you apply the skills and knowledge acquired through the program, and all of them are sure to be enjoyable and interesting courses of research.

Are there any scholarships I can apply for?

There are not currently any scholarships offered for participation in the program, but it may be possible to apply for certain grants and scholarships through your host university to help cover program costs. For more information on program costs please refer to the SEED Program website.

What happens if travel is not possible due to COVID-19?

The SEED Program research and curriculum will proceed as intended, but the Study Tour portion will be shifted to an online format. The SEED Program will organize a satellite event in which students can gather in their home countries to make their Final Pitch in front of stakeholders and the local community virtually, as well as enjoy a proper ceremony and celebration. In any case, Certificate of Completion will still be awarded.

What can I gain from participating in the SEED Program?

The benefits of participation are threefold. First, students receive education and training through a skills based curriculum that develops key competencies in regard to research and business development. Second, participation in the program is a rare opportunity for real life engagement beyond the classroom that gives students a physical product at the end: research and business proposals. Finally, students are awarded certificates of completion for finishing the program to demonstrate leadership, commitment, and experience, which can be listed as a qualification on resumes and other documents.

Do I have to apply for the visa by myself?

Yes. You have to apply for the visa by yourself so we advise you should start the application at least two months before the study tour begins.

How much money should I prepare for during the tour?

We recommend students prepare at least $240 for dinner. However, please refer to the program brochure for a breakdown of comprehensive costs.

How many doses of vaccine do I need to take before participation?

As a condition of participation in the program all students must be considered “fully vaccinated” by the standards of the Japanese government at the time of entry into the country.

If I cannot receive the vaccine due to allergies, can I participate?

Japan does not currently recognize medical exemptions to vaccination for foreigners, and thus vaccination is a requirement for participation.

Is there a specific manufacturer of the vaccine?

The Japanese government currently accepts only the following manufacturers: Moderna, Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Janssen, Covaxin.

If I am identified as a “close-contact” of infection (non-infected) just before the tour, can I still participate?

You will be required to take a PCR test prior to entering the country. Provided the test result is negative it is still possible to participate.

If I contract corona before the tour and the quarantine period may coincide with the departure date, can I join the time much later?

Yes. We welcome you to rejoin your colleagues when it becomes possible, but please acknowledge that the cost of flight changes is the responsibility of the participant.

Who will pay for costs associated with quarantine in case of infection during the tour?

These costs are the responsibility of the students, and it is recommended that participants purchase an insurance plan that covers these costs. In the case of infection on the tour, Gorom Association will help students manage the situation, but students will be responsible for any costs associated with PCR tests, quarantine, etc.


Is the situation in Japan now more restricted than usual due to the coronavirus?

Yes. Japan has a very strict policy regarding the spread of COVID-19.  Given the gradual easing of these policies, it is anticipated that participation in the program in person will be possible by December 2022. Given the unpredictable nature of infection and government response, please be aware that the program format may change based on the situation surrounding COVID-19.
