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). Those students’ first language is English, or second language but shows a demonstrable high level of English proficiency.  EbIS can graduate from this program by only taking courses lectured in English; however, Japanese language course lectured in Japanese is mandatory.

Compare 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 get enough confident 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[@]kwansei.ac.jp).
