Students in lower grades have no specific major in order to receive a rigorous general education across the major disciplines.

The courses enjoy wide coverage including frontier development. The system provides students with choices of their majors, and helps them acquire their own knowledge and ability gradually. They also enjoy the freedom to choose their research topics and supervisors.

Students of all disciplines live together, stimulating better communication.
