Admission Information

1. International Admission: English-based Degree Program

Applicants who are admitted through International Admission  will be enrolled in English-based Degree Program as English-based International Students (EbIS). English-based International Students are those whose first language is English or who have a demonstrable high level of English as their second language.  EbIS can graduate from this program by taking only courses lectured in English; however, Japanese language course lectured in Japanese is mandatory.

Compared to courses lectured in Japanese, courses taught in English tend to have fewer students. So, not only students can get closer to classmates, but also to instructors. Especially the seminar type class will deepen students’ specialty.

There is no restriction to take courses taught in Japanese. When students are confident enough to take those courses, they can do so. You may be able to make more friends!

Please contact the SIS office if you have any inquiries concerning the admission process (kgusis[@]
