Completing courses
  Conditions for completing a graduate school differ for master's and doctor's courses. To complete a master's course, a student must study for at least two years in principle, acquire the necessary credits (at least 30 credits) in his or her special subject, write a master's thesis that is judged satisfactory, and pass an examination. Students who complete a master's course receive a "master's degree."

  In the case of a doctor's course, a student must attend graduate school for at least five years (including the two years of a master's course), acquire at least 30 credits (including master's course credits), write a doctoral thesis that is judged satisfactory, and pass an examination. Students who complete a doctor's course receive a "doctor's degree."

  Please refer to Chapter 5. 9 for the international recognition of graduate school degrees and Fig. 6 in Chapter 17 for the numbers of master's and doctor's degrees conferred on international students.
