Home Page for Turnbull Zemi


Here are some resources for students for seminar (mostly Masters, but some are relevant to Doctoral candidates and undergraduates, too). More recent additions are at the top.

Note: Most study resources have been moved into Workflow. (I will fix up the links later.)

There are also a list of resources for travel outside of Japan. Remember you must register your absence with the university and purchase travel insurance.

Links to audio recordings of Kahneman's book are in a separate folder. When made available, a note will be posted here.

Resources for Applicants (Regular Student and Kenkyusei)

Here are some resources for students interested in applying to my seminar, as regular students (master or doctor) or kenkyusei.

First, introduce yourself. Whether you are applying directly for a degree program or for kenkyusei (research student), you should send me the Application Form for Academic Advisor Assignment (指導教員希望調査書) available on this page (English) or this page (Japanese), and a copy of the transcript of your grades (can be in English, Japanese, or Chinese).

For the application, you need to apply both to me and to the University. For kenkyusei, see

For direct application to the graduate school, see and contact me directly about approval for application to study with me.

Resources for traveling

The university requires that you submit the Overseas Travel Notification (海外渡航届, OTN) which is linked from the pages above.

OSSMA is a convenient service if you have trouble while traveling overseas. Signing up for OSSMA is voluntary but recommended.

OTN is a simple procedure but being admitted to the OSSMA program takes some time. If you want the benefits of OSSMA, register early.
